I’m delighted to say that I have started working with Chelsea Green, a leading US publisher, to help them spread the word in the UK about their remarkable books and authors.

Since 1984, Chelsea Green has been publishing books on the politics and practice of sustainable living. A founding member of the Green Press Initiative, Chelsea Green has been printing books on recycled paper since 1985 and leads the industry both in terms of content—foundational books on renewable energy, green building, organic agriculture, food, and ethical business—and in terms of environmental practice, printing 95 percent of their books on recycled paper with a minimum 30 percent post-consumer waste and aiming for 100 percent whenever possible.

The company, which became employee-owned last year, had its best sales year ever in 2012, with its fourth New York Times bestseller The Art of Fermentation by Sandor Ellix Katz (over 50,000 copies sold) and Jorgen Randers’ 2052: A Global Forecast for the Next Forty Years contributing to its success.

Chelsea Green has also set up a sales and distribution partnership in the UK with agency Publishers Group UK, with warehousing and fulfillment through Grantham Book Services.

“We are looking forward to a long and happy relationship with PGUK. Their track record representing U.S. publishers in the UK is excellent, and they really ‘get’ our books,” says Michael Weaver, Chelsea Green’s trade and export sales manager. “Having a strong distribution partner in this market can only help us expand our reputation for producing quality resources for sustainable living, as well as provocative and timely political titles.”

“We are delighted to be working with Chelsea Green,” says PGUK joint managing director Cathy Parson. “We have a great respect and affinity for their publishing programme and look forward to working closely with them to develop sales in the UK and Europe.”
