Go Green With Us!

Look at a Book does more than just provide Like New Books!

Over the past 10 years, we’ve recycled over 22 million pounds of books… diverting them away from landfills!

At Look at a Book, we recycle (in one way or another) each and every book that is processed in our warehouse.

Books that do not meet our quality standards or are simply too outdated to be reused are sent to one of our partners for direct and indirect conversion to post consumer recycled paper products.


The EPA estimates that Recycling ONE ton of paper…

  1. Saves 17 mature trees from logging operations!
  2. Saves 7,000 gallons of water!
  3. Saves enough energy to power the average American home for 6 months.
  4. Reduces greenhouse gas emissions by one metric ton of carbon equivalent (MTCE)
