Read Responsibly! Why you should buy & sell used books…

Picture a thirty-acre forest full of trees, densely packed with different shades and textures of green… It’s hard to envisage that many trees, isn’t it? But believe it or not, WeBuyBooks saves a forest of this size each year by giving used books a new lease of life. That’s thirty thousand trees – a staggering amount.

Reduce your carbon footprint

It’s a simple thing, but by buying and selling used books, you can decrease the effects of climate change. These small actions, when done frequently by lots of people – become the big actions that make change happen. While many people may first associate WeBuyBooks with making money and decluttering, our service also helps to reduce carbon footprints, something that is increasingly important and urgent in today’s climate. Although in principle, using trees for paper isn’t always a totally unsustainable exercise, the publishing industry does have a negative effect on the environment due to the energy used in manufacturing books.

Choose “green” reading habits

Choose “green” reading habits

You may be surprised to know that “The pulp, paper and printing sector… continues to be among the top industrial energy consumers” and produces considerable CO2 emissions. But by selling your books to WeBuyBooks, you pass them onto new owners and consequently help to reduce the demand for new books to be manufactured. Same goes for buying books (if and when you decide to refill the space made on your shelves after selling to us!) – opt for used books to ensure your reading habits won’t damage the environment. A book may be a small, everyday object, but there is “invisible” energy that has gone into every single one. This energy that may be invisible to most of us, but it certainly isn’t to our planet.

We're famous...
