Seeds of knowledge

Tree Book Tree is a book made of recycle materials and studded with seeds. When a child finishes it--an Argentinian child--he or she plants it in the ground and it grows back into a jacaranda tree.


In Argentina, 6 million books are pubished each month--45 million pages a day--that's a lot of trees!

As it is, areas of forest are being lost!

Of course, these are twee books, custom written, hand stitched.

But once the idea is there--and I have seen paper cups and greeting cards like this---it can be refined.

Try that with a Kindle!

Actually--you can try it yourself--get seed-implanted paper (Google) and write a booklet for a gift for a child.
