A word on responsibility

Our books are all about the environment and so are we. We make every effort to ensure that each stage in the life cycle of our books is carried out with the planet and its people in mind. Wild Dog books are printed on FSC stock, and our main office deliveries are by electric vehicle. Our Tasmanian office is entirely solar powered.

We are committed to using only companies that guarantee no use of slave labour in their, and therefore our, supply chain. We remain constantly vigilant to ensure that we are using absolute best practice in regard to human rights.
