Green Your Reading Habits: Use the Library

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

Tip #1: Visit Your Local Library

Libraries are great because you can get books without hurting your wallet or creating additional demand for trees. You can also choose from a wide selection of magazines, newspapers, videos, CDs, and audiobooks. To further green your library trip, take public transportation there -- or stay home and download the library’s e-books or audiobooks for free.

Tip #2: Use E-Book Readers

Tip #3: Swap Books

Tip #4: Read Eco-Themed Books
