Effective with its current list, Arcadia Publishing is now printing all of its titles on Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) paper, making it the first publisher of its size to be using FSC paper for all books. Based in Mount Pleasant, S.C., Arcadia publishes about 700 new titles per year devoted to local history. “Consistent with our commitment to help communities preserve history through local and regional history books, we have extended our efforts to improve the impact we have on our environment,” said Richard Joseph, Arcadia CEO, about the move to FSC paper.
In addition to carrying FSC certification, all Arcadia books are manufactured in South Carolina on American-made paper. “We are proud our books are made right here in the USA,” Joseph said. “Our books feature local history, are manufactured locally, and are written by local authors—our focus is truly all about being local.”
