Green Books

Green Books is an independent publishing company founded in 1986 which concentrates on environmental and ecological issues

We print all our books on recycled paper (mostly 100% post-consumer waste), and all our books are printed within 150 miles of our offices in Devon, using vegetable-based inks. We were winners in the Environmental category at both the 2009 British Book Design and Production Awards and the 2010 Independent Publishing Awards.

In recent years we have focused in the fields of organic gardening, eco-building and Transition, as well as publishing other books on subjects such as politics, economics and green living. Our most recent gardening book is Creating a Forest Garden by Martin Crawford, the definitive guide to the subject.

We are publishers of books for the Transition Network: besides Rob Hopkins' The Transition Handbook, we have The Transition Timeline by Shaun Chamberlin and books on Local Food by Rob Hopkins and Tamzin Pinkerton and Local Money by Peter North. A full list of Transition titles is at

Other forthcoming titles include Do we need Pandas? The uncomfortable truth about biodiversity by Ken Thompson, Compassionate Economics by Philip B. Smith and Manfred Max-Neef and Where Earwigs Dare by performance poet Matt Harvey, who is regularly featured on Radio 4's Saturday Live and in The Guardian.

Help us keep the Ecologist platform going

Since 2012, the Ecologist has been owned and published by a small UK-based charity called the Resurgence Trust. We work hard to support the kind of independent journalism and comment that we know Ecologist readers enjoy but we need your help to keep going. We do all this on a very small budget with a very small editorial team and so joining the Trust or making a donation will show us you value our work and support the platform which is currently offered as a free service.
