Reading has been a popular pastime for centuries and is often seen as the most romantic form of escapism. Reading a book allows us to transport ourselves to another world, learn new things, and escape reality.
Books can be a great source of companionship during lonely times and offer emotional support when we need it the most. Now your passion for books and reading can help the environment.
Sustainable living is accomplished by making choices that reduce our environmental impact by making fundamental changes to counteract climate change and decrease ecological destruction. But unfortunately, when you shop for a new novel, most readers don't imagine that you can do it in an eco-friendly way.
In every area of your life, you can live a sustainable lifestyle even while shopping for new to you vintage books!
Browsing vintage shops or estate sales for items for your home is essential because recycling and reusing items means no new resources or energy is used.
Here is an interesting statistic, approximately 640,000 tons of books are deposited in the landfill annually at an average weight of 4 pounds each. This averages out to about 320 million books discarded each year that are not recycled. Wow!
