About 50/50 Bookstore:
It all started when we saw how much waste there is in the used book industry. After nearly a decade in the industry, we decided there has to be a better way. Each year, millions of pounds of books end up being debinded and pulped at paper mills to be turned into cardboard boxes and napkins. These are good readable books that could have a second or third life in another reader’s hands. 50/50 bookstore is a response to this issue.
50/50 bookstore has a revolving inventory of over 5,000 books available to the public to take home and enjoy. A pay-what-you-can model means that all who want books, can have books regardless of whether they can afford it or not.
Each month, we partner with different organizations that make a positive impact in our community and environment. These partners receive 50% of the proceeds from the bookstore to help fund their programs.
At the heart of it, we believe in reducing waste and connecting quality books with the community.
