ESG/Ethical Impact

As part of our commitment to environmental sustainability, we never, ever throw away a book. Any book we cannot find a proper home for is recycled. Every order at BetterWorldBooks.com has the option to be shipped carbon balanced for just a few cents extra. Better World Books has been trying to address this in the UK since 2008. We collect pre-loved books and sell them through our website and 10 other marketplaces with every sale generating an income for literacy partners and literacy projects. For the books we can’t sell, we donate to people in need or recycle. We send NOTHING to landfill. To continue sharing our mission in East Lothian, we placed three more book banks in this area, adding to the growing book bank locations we have throughout the UK. See our current book bank locations here. On Tuesday 14th March, our Logistics Specialist, Dan Shiels and Client Services Specialist, Emma Houston started their day at Better World Books’ UK Headquarters in Dunfermline where three more shiny green book banks were loaded onto a lorry before starting their journey to their new homes… The first stop was the very picturesque and, on this particular day, very windy, seaside town of Dunbar where a book bank was placed at Bleachingfield Community Centre. Conveniently located between the community centre and Dunbar Primary school, the book bank is easily accessible by car or on foot. As Dunbar have been waving the flag as Scotland’s first Zero Waste Town since 2014, we’re hoping they’re going to set the standards on how easy it is divert books from landfill by donating them into the book bank they now have in their community.
