The GET FREE BOOKS initiative is environmentally friendly:
As a nation we enjoy reading and often buy books rather than borrow them from a library. Gradually, shelves, rooms, garages and lofts become full of books. The GET Free Books initiative allows every book to have another chance to be read. GET receives donations of books which are sorted, categorised and distributed across our network of Free Book shops and made available within communities
Due to the manner in which books are constructed, it is not possible to recycle them in the same way as standard paper. As a result, unwanted books increase landfill at an astonishing rate. The GET Free Books initiative allows books to be shared throughout communities.
