In many universities tomorrow is the first day of the spring semester. If you're a student, it means that you probably already started your search after the textbooks you need for your classes.
If you want to do something about the environmental impacts of your textbooks, you have few possibilities. One option is to rent textbooks and not buy them. You can do it at Chegg.com that also partners with us to plant a tree for every textbook that is rented, so the environment gains twice here (maximum usage of each textbook and a new tree for every rent). If you are looking to buy a textbook, I would like to recommend on iChatpers.
I learned recently that iChapters is a source for printed textbooks, eBooks and even single eChapters. What really makes it attractive, besides their big stock of electronic textbooks, is the fact that they also plant one tree for every eChapter or eBook purchased through their website until February 15th.
The trees are planted by the non-profit organization Paso Pacifico, which operates in Nicaragua. So far the program is responsible for more than 35,000 trees that will be planted by Paso Pacifico!
This is a great program and we congratulate iChapters on their efforts to go green and make textbook purchasing more sustainable. iChapters' offer to plant a tree for every eChapter or eBook purchased on their site continues for five more days, so you still have time to check it out and see what they've got to offer.
