Being kind to the environment is an important part of our mission at Half Price Books. We have always believed that "Books should fill our lives, not our land." And we've tried to remain true to that premise for more than forty years.
It becomes clearer every day that we all need to work together to make this world a better place for our children and grandchildren. I encourage our employees, business partners and suppliers to join with us as we strive to improve the environment and conserve our natural resources.
In our stores we remind our customers to b(eco)me greener by declining plastic bags. Starting today, when a customer declines a plastic bag we will donate 5 cents to a local environmental nonprofit organization.
We hope you'll join us in our effort to keep plastic bags out of our landfills and oceans. To read more about our b(eco)me bagless movement and to find out which nonprofit HPB is supporting in your neighborhood, visit hpb.com/eco.
