Reading the Green Way

Reading the Green Way

I love reading like I LOVE reading. Recently, I’ve been reading different books ranging from “Dare to Lead” by Brene Brown to the Kitten Lady’s “Tiny but Mighty”. However, as much as I love the fresh smell of a brand new book, it’s not always the most eco-friendly option for being a green reader. There are some options though that we as book lovers can follow to be mean green reading machines.

Audio books are a perfect example of how many people are utilizing technology to reduce their carbon footprint while also enjoying a great read. Many books can be instantly downloaded to your computer, notebook, ipad, or most other accessible technology. However, I know from personal experience that sometimes there is nothing more special than having a physical copy of reading material to have a magical reading adventure. In this case, first look to your local library for the book you’re looking for. Most libraries in my area have updated physical copies for a variety of reading, but if the local library in your area doesn’t have what you’re looking for, there are still opportunities to be a green reader.

Stores such as Half Priced Books sell used books (as well as buy books from readers looking to make some cash back after their done reading). There are also online stores such as  that readers can also buy and sell used books to other fellow green readers. So with all the options available to readers, let’s make sure we make green choices everyday, even when it comes to the favorite past time of absorbing written words.
