Better World Books is a global bookstore on a mission to make books globally available to everyone who needs them. Based on the concepts of Buy One Give One, and You Buy, We Donate, Better World Books has given over six million books and raised over 12 million dollars for libraries and literacy, all while turning a profit.
In a world where so many companies think they exist solely to turn a profit, it is always heartening to see one realise that most companies were founded with the purpose of making the world better in some way or other, and that profit is the result of doing so rather than the goal unto itself.
Better World Books are clear in their mission and unashamedly for profit. A perfect combination commerce and conscience joining forces to make a positive impact.
