More about our ReadCycle program:
Books are meant to be read, and reading a book can do a world of good. Do you have a book that you don’t read anymore? Would you like to get a chapter of one of our upcoming books? Then participate in our ReadCycle program! To participate, you have two options:
1. Send us a book and we will personally donate it in your name!
If you send us a book with your contact information (email and address,) we will pack it and donate it to a community in need of books in the English language. In return, we will email you a chapter of one of our upcoming books and a special thank-you note with a surprise gift only for you.
2. Donate the book yourself in your own community!
More about Eco-Libris:
Founded in 2007, Eco-Libris (www.ecolibris.net) is a green company working with book readers, publishers, authors, bookstores and others in the book industry to make reading more sustainable.
More than 30 Million trees are cut down annually for virgin paper used for the production of books sold in the U.S. alone. Eco-Libris aims to raise awareness regarding the environmental impacts of using paper for the production of books and provide people and businesses with an affordable and easy way to do something about it: plant one tree for every book they read, publish or sell.
To achieve these goals, Eco-Libris partnered with three highly respected US and UK registered non-profit organizations that work in collaboration with local communities in developing countries to plant these trees. These trees are planted in high ecological and sustainable standards in Latin America and Africa, where deforestation is a crucial problem. Planting trees in these places not only helps to fight climate change and conserve soil and water, but also benefits many local people, for whom these trees offer many benefits, such as improvement of crops and additional food and income, and an opportunity for a better future.
Brighter Books Publishing House has so far contributed to over 1200 trees planted in Guatemala and Africa!
