Booksanjal takes our role in the reading community seriously, and this is why we focus on 50 lakhs tenets when it comes to our social responsibility.
Since its inception, Booksanjal has purchased books from charities allowing them to focus on doing good in the community and applying the funds towards programs that give back. Over the last decade, Booksanjal has provided more than 1 crore to charity partners through its purchase of reading materials.
Truckloads of books come through our warehouse doors every day. Tens of thousands of these books are sold to customers worldwide or shipped in bulk internationally. Material we can’t use is sent to recycling plants, where each ton of 100% post-consumer copy paper (approximately 1.4 tons of books) saves 24 trees, 7,000 gallons of water, 4,100 kilowatts of electricity, and 60 pounds of air pollution. Booksanjal recycles millions of pounds of books every year.
Booksanjal Gives partners with non-profits to provide for underserved communities, including Title I schools, prison libraries, and international literacy programs. Whether donating books or volunteering our time, we focus on promoting reading and its benefits in the world.
