Like many organizations today, corporate social responsibility is an integrated part of who we are and how we operate. Illiteracy is a devastating barrier to success -- and it's an issue we care about -- so we leverage our resources to help.
Beyond literacy, we’re proud of our contribution to the environment by reducing unnecessary waste to landfills and working hard to ensure books can be read again--either through resale, or by being donated to respected literacy - or community-based non-profit organizations. When that’s not possible, we believe books should be recycled and become a different product with a new story to tell.
We can remember the excitement we felt when we donated our first 100,000 books. Today, through our partnerships with non-profit organizations in North America and around the world, we have donated millions of books to give children and adults a better chance at achieving success.
We support literacy efforts in communities by providing high-quality books to children, families, schools, libraries, and others in need – and we’d like to do more.
