Based in the United States, Better World Books was founded in 2002 by students from the University of Notre Dame that began to sell textbooks over the Internet. Over the years, the business has contributed to the worldwide literacy and education movements by raising over $7 million for various libraries and nonprofit organizations. Some of those include their five main partners: Room to Read, Books for Africa, Invisible Children, WorldFund and the National Center for Family Literacy. Better World Books works locally, nationally and globally in order to make the most impact.
On its website, Better World Books has over 6 million titles to choose from, meaning that you can always find something to read. And what about the shipping process? Better World Books uses the Carbon Neutral Shopping Cart, a program that takes a few cents from each customer after a purchase, which goes straight to Carbonfund.org, a nonprofit that partners with businesses to offset carbon footprints. Better World Books’ social and environmental goals gives the business an edge against competitors, while also transforming the way that we traditionally think of profit.
