Corporate social responsibility

3dtotal Publishing is fortunate enough to be owned by someone who sincerely cares about the world we live in. Here is a summary of some of the things we do to try to help the earth and the people who inhabit it.

Effective altruism

3dtotal Publishing has committed to donate 50% of its net profits to a number of the most effective, high-impact charities, covering causes such as protecting existing rainforests, humanitarian work, and supporting animal welfare. Recipients include: Centre for Effective Altruism, Clean Air Taskforce, Coalition for Rainforest Nations, KIVA, and UNHCR. Of course, we have to thank the amazing artists and community who buy our books for making this opportunity possible. See 3dtotal.com/charity for full details.

 Carbon footprint

As a business, and especially as a publisher, we are also conscious of our carbon footprint. Therefore, we have made substantial efforts to offset our impact on the environment, including donating the appropriate funds to Eden Reforestation Projects to plant one tree for every book sold. Our partners in printing and shipping are carefully selected to align with our company ethos, and ensure our customers can buy from 3dtotal Publishing in the knowledge that they are working with us to balance the environmental damage caused by the publishing, shipping, and retail industries as well as supporting many other causes.
