Environmentally  Friendly 
The best way to recycle books and media is to put them to use in other ways. As the second largest used book seller in the city of San Francisco, we make sure your donations find new life in other peoples' homes. 
The  Community  Book  Program (CBP)  is  a  green  reuse  program  diverting  550  tons  of  books  from  landfill  every  year  to  higher  and  better  uses  in  the  community.
Donations  To  the  Community
We also give books and media away to worthy community organizations.
