Take it, love it, pass it on
Do you really give away books for free?
Yes we do! "Books for Free" rescues unwanted books otherwise destined for landfill or pulping. Healthy Planet redistributes these books - for free - throughout communities via our 36 volunteer-run Books for Free centres on high streets nationwide.
Books for free is part of Sustainable Community, where in three years we have helped save over 1,500 tonnes of books from landfill and pulping each year and redistribute them through our centres where they are swapped and shared.
Without Books For Free, thousands upon thousands of books would end their lives piled up on a landfill or torn apart for pulping. Surprisingly, this number includes unsold books that have never been used. It’s an unimaginable waste on many levels. So that’s why Healthy Planet set up Books for Free, a project that is as simple and straightforward as it sounds.
