If you sell books and want to become more eco-friendly, you're in the right place.

Eco-Libris offers you a way to go green at the core level of your business - selling books. Collaborating with us will provide you and your customers with an opportunity to balance out the paper in the books that are sold at your store by planting trees in developing countries. Your customers will also receive Eco-Libris stickers (made of recycled paper) to put on the books they bought and balanced out, showing this way their commitment to the environment.
