Support “Green Reads,” a Program That Finances Libraries by Distributing Used Books in Eco-Friendly Vending Machines

green reads

Green Reads has launched a crowd fund­ing cam­paign on IndieGogo to build 15 eco-friend­ly, used book vend­ing machines. Invent­ed by Dana Clarke, the machines require no elec­tric­i­ty and they’ll allow libraries, char­i­ties, and book retail­ers a way to sell used books and cre­ate a sus­tain­able source of rev­enue. Green Reads is look­ing to raise $75,000 ($5000 per machine) by May 19. Once oper­a­tional, the machines will be donat­ed (not sold) to libraries and char­i­ties. You can get a lot more infor­ma­tion and con­tribute to this wor­thy cam­paign right here.
