At BookRenter, we pride ourselves on our sustainable business model. Our company protects the environment by recycling used books, as well as allowing customers to reuse (and therefore recycle) new textbooks. On average, a book is reused five times. By renting books, BookRenter decreases demand for virgin fiber paper. The US book industry uses this paper for books, at a cost of approximatley 20 million trees a year.
So on textbook rentals are not just a way to make money - it is a way to do your part for the environment. BookRenter is committed to being a green, sustainable business. Good business is green business!
By reducing the number of trees cut for books, you can also help reduce global warming - there are more trees to absorb carbon dioxide and there is less fuel being burned for cutting, transporting, and processing trees into paper.
Certified as a Green Business by Santa Clara County in California, BookRenter.com implements internal practices that help curb pollution, conserve resources, and reduce waste.
Since launching the first textbook rental site in 2006, BookRenter has never wavered from our mission to make education more affordable for all students. Every day, we focus on delivering students the best prices, the most flexible options, and the best service on earth. On March 13, 2012 BookRenter.com, Inc. formally changed its name to Rafter, Inc. We are still the same company and the same people, only our corporate name has changed.
