Random House, Inc., the U.S. division of Random House, the world's largest trade book publisher, recently announced that it will raise the amount of recycled paper it uses to print its books from 3 percent to 30 percent over the next four years.

The publisher pledged that 10 percent of its purchased paper will come from recycled paper fibers in 2007, 15 percent in 2008, and 20 percent in 2009. Once it reaches 30 percent in 2010, the recycling program will save 550,000 trees annually.

Random House currently purchases 120,000 tons of paper for book production each year.
