better world books
Purpose: buy one - give one, percent to charity
We collect and sell new and used books online, to be able to donate books and fund literacy initiatives worldwide. With more than 8 million titles in stock, we create social, economic and environmental value.
We’re not a traditional company with an add-on “cause” component. Social and environmental responsibility is at the core of our business. We believe that education and access to books are basic human rights. That's why books sold on our website help fund high-impact literacy projects in the U.S. and around the world. That's why we commit to matching every purchase on our website with a book donation to someone in need - Book for Book™.
With super bargains and free shipping worldwide, we've already converted more than 280 million books into over $26 million in funding for literacy and education. In the process, we’ve also diverted more than 250 million books from landfills, and we’ve donated over 24 million books to partner programs around the world.
And since we're concerned about our eco-footprint, every order shipped is carbon balanced with Green-e Climate certified offsets from 3Degrees, a leading green power and carbon balancing services firm. Visit betterworldbooks.com.
