Eco-friendly Dr, Seuss books help charities

In the words of Dr. Seuss in his book "The Lorax," "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not."

That's the mind-set behind the Kohl's Cares for Kids initiative that benefits children's health and education initiatives nationwide.

As part of that charity, Kohl's is offering affordable collector's editions of Dr. Seuss books and plush toy characters.

Building on the message of taking care of the environment outlined in "The Lorax," all four Dr. Seuss books are printed on 60 percent post-consumer recycled paper.

Adults can also learn about being eco-friendly with the "Green Book," by Elizabeth Rogers and Thomas M. Kostigen. The book includes celebrity anecdotes and is printed on 100 percent post-consumer recycled paper.

Through April, Kohl's will offer the books at $5 each at Kohl's stores nationwide and online at The plush toys are also $5 each.

The Dr. Seuss books include "The Lorax," "The Foot Book," "Oh the Thinks You Can Think" and "If I Ran the Circus."
