Better World Books is a global bookstore that harnesses the power of capitalism to bring literacy and opportunity to people around the world. With its Buy One, Give One business model, or One for One, Better World Books has raised over $10 million for global literacy and reused/recycled over 51 million books.
Better World Books is among a unique and growing group of triple bottom line companies who understand that profit is not the only way to measure business success. People also matter. And so does the planet on which we all live.
For Better World Books, the triple bottom line comes in lots of forms. From helping to build a nursing library in Somaliland to offering customers carbon neutral shipping on every book they buy, doing good is not just a part of Better World Books’ business—it is the business.
