Macmillan Sustainability


Audiobooks and CD-based education products and resources are a large part of our business. There are different parts of our CD-based products including the CD, CD case, and the package. For the CD case, we use a paper sleeve instead of a jewel case or plastic sleeve.  Wherever possible, packaging has been minimized or eliminated.


Finding a sustainable alternative for the CD itself is the most difficult challenge because there are few alternatives for the polycarbonate CD. Fortunately, more and more people are moving toward digital downloads, and we are encouraging the transition.  Every download means one less CD, one less CD case and one less package, and a great deal less emissions.
