Better World Books


My friend Marita recommended this site to me….Better World Books.com She has found books she has needed for her daughter that she wasn’t able to find elsewhere and for a fraction of the cost (and no shipping and handling, except outside of the country)  Fund literacy worldwide, shop smart, reduce landfills and be part of a social enterprise!  Sounds like a winner to me.

Better World Books collects and sells books online to fund literacy initiatives worldwide. With more than two million new and used titles in stock, we’re a self-sustaining, triple-bottom-line company that creates social, economic and environmental value for all our stakeholders. We were founded in 2002 by three friends from the University of Notre Dame who started selling textbooks online to earn some money, and ended up forming a pioneering social enterprise — a business with a mission to promote literacy. We’re not a traditional company with an add-on “cause” component. Social and environmental responsibility is at the core of our business. You could say it’s in our DNA.
