All books published by Little Chicken, Honestly Books and Violet’s Vegan Comics have been printed by
CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform who state:
Environmental consciousness is important to us as we continue to grow. As a manufacture on-demand company, we produce units only as they’re ordered, which reduces excess production. Our ink is chlorine-free, and our acid-free interior paper stock is supplied by an FSC-certified provider. We currently offer a 55# (weight) off-set cream paper for black and white book interiors that is made from 30% post-consumer waste recycled material.
I can confirm that our printers do not contain animal byproducts in their list of ingredients. We are using petroleum hydrocarbon as the primary ingredient with the addition of several different chemicals/minerals for color and quality.
The glue products are a plastic base material and they also do not contain animal byproducts. These glues are an ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer and the company we buy from has found alternatives to animal testing.
We maintain a commitment to recycling waste materials resulting from the printing process and from daily office operations, and we will continue to review our practices to ensure we are doing our part to protect the environment.
