Editoriales Cartoneras

- La crisis económica en Argentina ha dado vida a una novedosa forma de editar libros. Las llamadas editoriales cartoneras fabrican sus libros con cartón y papel comprados directamente a los pepenadores de los basureros. La idea es dignificar a los trabajadores marginales y al mismo tiempo ayudar a nuevos escritores a publicar sus obras. Nuestro reportero Raúl Silva ha seguido de cerca esta exitosa empresa social. Este reporte es parte de la serie “Nuestras Raíces: Historias sobre los artistas del pueblo”.

“CARTONERA PUBLISHING” – The economic crisis in Argentina has given rise to an innovative form of publishing books. The cartonera publishers make their books out of cardboard and paper bought directly from scavengers of the garbage dumps. The idea is to dignify the work of marginal workers and at the same time help writers to publish. Our reporter Raúl Silva has followed this successful social enterprise closely. This story is part of the series “Our Roots: Stories about Folk Artists.”
