Who is Better World Books? from Better World Books on Vimeo.

Better World Books (BWB) sells books online. Shipping is free. BWB then uses the money from books sold to fund literacy projects both in the US and internationally. BWB makes a book donation for every book sold, book for book
If that’s not enough: 

“In addition to selling new titles, Better World Books supports book drives and collects used books and textbooks through a network of over 2,300 college campuses and partnerships with over 3,000 libraries nationwide. So far, the company has converted more than 117 million books into over $15 million in funding for literacy and education. In the process, we’ve also diverted more than 73,000 tons of books from landfills.”  

As a bonus, they even have shipping that is carbon balanced by Green-e climate certified offsets approved by 3 Degrees.
They even sell eBooks and used audiobooks. I checked. I’m trying to think of reasons not to buy from them, but until I can, you should check them out.
