Eco Libris

There are an awful lot of books printed every year and many of them end up in the garbage. Granted, they should be recycled, but not every community offers that option. They should also, perhaps, be donated to the library, but my guess is that Small Town Library USA isn't clamoring for the tattered copy of The Happy Hooker you found while cleaning out your great uncle's house for an estate sale or that Windows 95 For Dummies book you still have in your basement.

And still, even books you love, books you'd never dream of parting with were once trees. And the world could certainly use more of those.

So what's a reader to do?

Planet-conscious book reader, meet Eco Libris, shrinking your environmental footprint one book at a time.
