The Importance of Book Recycling and Re homing

Books are valuable resources that should never go to waste. Yet, many books end up discarded or forgotten, contributing to landfill waste. By recycling and re-homing your books, you not only prevent them from ending up in landfills but also ensure that others can benefit from them. Re-homing books will extend their lifespan, allowing more people to enjoy and learn from their contents.

Promoting Sustainable Reading Habits

Reusing existing resources is an eco-friendly choice that helps conserve natural resources and reduce carbon emissions associated with book production and distribution.

What Happens to The Books After?

All the books donated by our wonderful customer will stay within the country. Where they are re-homed to readers who will appreciate them. Books that cannot be re-homed are sent off to be pulped, which will then lead to them being repurposed into paper for recycling, promoting environmental sustainability. You may ask, is it the best thing to recycle the books? If they are being pulped and recycled, this is much more efficient than being taken to the local dump/tip. Donated books are sent to where is suitable for them. We are rescuing them from our customers before they take them to the tip or into their general waste bins. We are giving everyone the opportunity to donate their books for great causes.
