Happy Earth Day! The bibliomaniacs here at Half Price Books have been green since before it was cool. Helping the environment by preserving and recycling resources has always been a part of our daily business, and we feel that everyone can help preserve the environment.
We strive to be green when we are constructing our stores. Each new location is constructed with 100% recyclable flooring, handmade wood shelves (made in our very own HPB Woodshoppe!) and eco-friendly paints. We also offer post-consumer waste shopping bags and recyclable paper gift cards.
In 2014, we donated more than 1.6 million books to non-profits and schools, helping to enrich minds and keep books out of landfills. We continue to donate as part of our Million Book Donation Project – check out our 2015 progress!
Half Price Books continues to look for ways to b(eco)me green. Tell us the green things you do in the comments!
