Better World Books Aims to Alleviate Poverty Through Literacy

— March 5, 2011 — Social Good
Better World Books is an online bookstore certified by B corporation that operates as a social business and thus adheres to the triple bottom line. What it does is in its name: the enterprise tries to create a better world by selling books.

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.

Behind Better World Books is the belief that literacy and education is a key aspect of poverty alleviation. One book at time, we can all create positive change with the help of Better World Books.
