A Little History On Better World Books.
In 2002, 3 university students began selling textbooks online. Though their business thrived, they wanted to further their business by enhancing literacy worldwide by gathering used books meant for the landfill and selling them.
Their business model is a conscious and compassionate one, allowing them to take what is already here i.e. books, and generate revenue to support literacy and make a profit. They have an active employee profit sharing program which makes everyone an integral part of the business.
Here are some ways they contribute to literacy:
- They take old books from libraries and sell them. Part of the proceeds are given back to the library to purchase new books.
- Better World Books supports book drives, collecting used books and text books. They gather them from a network of 1,800 college campuses and partnerships with 3000 libraries nationwide.
To date, Better World Books has converted more than 80 million pounds of books into $10,407,405.00 raised for literacy and libraries. 66,579,689 books have been reused or recycled.
