Green Your Reading Habits: E-Book Readers

ReadingTips_Ereaderjpg Curling up with a good book sounds like a great alternative to braving cold, rainy weather. Since books are made of trees, this week's tips are about how to green your reading habits.

Tip #2: Use an E-Book Reader

Despite the initial cost of electronic book readers and the plastic used to create them, they leave a smaller eco-footprint than paper books. With an e-book reader, you can download books, newspapers, and magazines from anywhere so you won’t have to drive to the bookstore to pick up the paper versions. To increase your green points, you can recycle your reader when you're done with it.
