The general availability of e-commerce has increased our everyday convenience: we can shop across the states and the whole world, we can easily reach out to local producers, the ordered items are delivered at our doorstep, and we can rely on various postal companies to take care of our private shipments. But as always, we should be aware of the downfalls of this often corruptive convenience and should act sustainably.
Sending items by post (be it textbooks, clothes returns, or gifts for your friends) is only natural and inevitable, so let’s make this process more sustainable and eco-friendly together.

Bearing this in mind, we launched our BooksRun Loyalty program to support you, our dear readers, in going green since buying, renting or selling used books is a way to minimize the deforestation and carbon footprint.
