Join the fight against deforestation

by becoming part of our community

You can make a big difference for the planet & society by sharing your pre-loved textbooks 

By donating or selling your books and choosing pre-loved ones for yourself, you're not only helping the environment, but you're also supporting other students in need.

Paper production is a leading cause of deforestation, but with your participation, we can reduce its impact. By choosing pre-loved books, you're not only saving money, but you're also conserving resources such as water and power that are used to produce new books.

So, let's spread the love for our planet and each other, by sharing your books!

Connect & Help 

You can help your housekeeper, security guard, or anyone you know who could benefit from free educational books.

There are NGOs who have already stocked books. You can help connect them with these NGOs, or even make the connection on their behalf.

New Arrivals 
Requests

Our members are on the hunt for these items, and we would be thrilled if you could contribute by adding any that you might have. By doing so, you'll be helping us notify interested parties, and who knows - you might even make someone's day!

Making it Cost effective & Eco friendly 

Hold onto your Eco Textbook treasures!

Once you add them to the pool, they're off on a journey to empower curious young minds but it might take a few weeks until they find their new homes.

We kindly ask you to hang onto your books until schools reopen. This gives parents plenty of time for convenient pick-up, and it helps us keep things cost-effective and eco-friendly - by reducing unnecessary transportation, we're saving money, resources and reducing carbon footprint !

In the meantime, our matchmaking magic is in full swing! We'll connect your books with the perfect NGO, student, or maybe even a fellow bookworm you meet right here.  When a match is made, let us know if you'd like help with shipping (at actual cost).

For those who prefer a hands-off approach, fear not!  check out the drop points to donate your books. We are adding more drop points as the campaign picks up, so check out the page for updates on points closest to you.

Remember, this campaign is about more than just books; it's building a community of eco-conscious readers. So stick around and explore future book swaps or green adventures with like-minded folks!

We want to simplify the book exchange process for you & other parents.

As part of the Eco Textbook Campaign, we can set up a yearly book exchange system in schools.

Can you help us by connecting us with your child's school?

Going green has never been easier for students!

Did you know that by reusing textbooks, every student can save five trees during their school years?  That's equivalent to planting 25 trees!

And as an added bonus, you can also save over

Rs 25,000 on textbooks.

This campaign is the true green solution.

Recycling is not always the Eco friendly option .

Here is an informative video by Domtar a paper manufacturing and recycling company, explaining why it is so
