Book Worm: Eco-Friendly Book Reading

Every inch of our lives can be eco-friendly, even your best book collection. Here are some handy suggestions on how to revamp your book collection and save some dough while you’re at it.

1.     Check out your local library; rather than ordering novels online reduce your books’ carbon footprint to borrow then return for other people to read.

2.     Try swapping books. There are even online swapping services like BookMooch that offer hundreds of thousands of titles and works on a points system where you get credits for each book you offer to swap which you can use to get other books.

3.     Check the clearance section. You can find tons of books even bestsellers after the final print run, or the store just ordered too many. You never know unless you try!

4.     Last but not least, E-books. Always in stock and much more convenient than a traditional book, these online versions are savings trees with every loyal reader.

About 1 hour of energy spent on a laptop reading an eBook equals the same amount of energy spent to create just 4 sheets of paper. Just 4!
