Committed to the conservation and protection of the environment, the Editorial of the CES University of Medellín participates for the first time with books protected with Kraft paper, replacing the heat-sealing of plastic packaging, and a stand entirely made with cardboard, this in the 13 of the Medellín Book and Culture Festival, which takes place between September 6 and 15.

There are a total of 38 titles including short stories, fiction novels, academic texts that Editorial CES brings to the Medellín Book and Culture Festival this year.

"The short-term purpose of the Editorial is that all books migrate from plastic packaging to a Kraft-type paper cover, which is biodegradable. It is important to clarify that the use of this paper is biodegradable, that is, reusable ”, said Roger David Sánchez Bravo, coordinator of Editorial CES.
