Help The Planet

Since 2015 Franklin Media has recycled over 20 million pounds of textbooks and we can help you find an environmentally responsible way to give your books a second life. Many books we receive meant for recycling can instead be redistributed back into the hands of students or donated to non-profits providing free reading and educational material to people who can otherwise not afford them.

  • To produce each week’s Sunday newspapers, 500,000 trees must be cut down.
  • If every American recycled just one-tenth of their newspapers, we would save about 25,000,000 trees a year.

  • The average American uses seven trees a year in paper, wood, and other products made from trees. This amounts to about 2,000,000,000 trees per year!

  • Americans use 85,000,000 tons of paper a year; about 680 pounds per person.

  • The average household throws away 13,000 separate pieces of paper each year. Most is packaging and junk mail.

  • 17 trees saved can absorb a total of 250 pounds of carbon dioxide from the air each year. Burning that same ton of paper would create 1500 pounds of carbon dioxide.
