Better World Books

I'd like to tell you all about green online book reseller Better World Books . Moms and Dads can stock their kid’s room or nursery's bookshelf with "Where the Wild Things Are," Paddington, etc. while at the same time:

- Diverting books from landfills (buying used is the best kind of recycling - and so far BWB has spared over 6,000 TONS from 'fills.)
- Offsetting shipping environmental costs with carbon offsets from
- Avoiding an SUV ride to the local Barnes & Noble for a "virgin pulp" new hardback

And as if that wasn't enough, here are some other bonuses:

- BWB books are up to 80% cheaper than new ones
- Shipping is free!
- Better World shares its revenues with important literacy groups like Books for Africa

So by shopping on, a mom will be doing something good for the environment, teaching her children to reuse resources when possible, and helping another child somewhere in the world learn to read to boot. A ripple of effect of good—all because she decided to ‘green’-up a bit!
