Recycling & More


Recycling

Wonder Book's paper and cardboard recycling at the
internet warehouse is taken out every 2 weeks.

As booklovers, Wonder Book, the company providing Books by the Foot, believes that books are not made to be disposed of—they are made to be read, collected, shared, and displayed.

We strive to find a home for every book, and we "recycle" around 1.5 million pounds of books each year by selling them in our three retail stores, on Amazon and other websites, and through Books by the Foot . We globally export 100,000+ books each year. Each time we match a book with a buyer, we consider it a victory.

For the few books we cannot sell, we physically recycle them. We recycle around 500,000 pounds of paper, cardboard, plastic, and cans each year. Nearly all of our shelving has been reclaimed from libraries and other booksellers.





Donations

Wonder Book's donations to the Gaithersburg VFW
Support Drive (December 2011).

Wonder Book gives back to the community with food drives throughout the year at our retail locations. We encourage customers to donate by offering canned food coupons, where customers bring in a can of food with their coupon to receive the discount. Since we started our food drive, we have collected over 250,000 cans of food for local food banks.

Besides food drives, Wonder Book donates books in bulk to various global charities, schools, and enterprises like ABC's "Extreme Makeover" because we love matching books with people, especially those who would not otherwise have books.
