The Pros of Second-hand: Sustainability


Even on a rainy Saturday afternoon the beauty of our second-hand books illuminate the shop!
In celebration of all pre-loved pieces of literature, I am discussing an undeniably crucial positive of buying second-hand, their sustainability.

The fact that so many of the books on our shelves could have ended up at landfill is a great concern.
That’s why, at The Beaufort Bookshop, we promote our second-hand relics so heavily. In order to divert the ever-growing waste littering our planet 🌍

Of course, there is also a certain charm to a second-hand book. Turning pages to find occasional scribbled notes in margins or an eloquently illustrated dust jacket demonstrate the unique magic and history of a second-hand text, which is something we want more and more people to enjoy.

With that pay us a visit and get lost in the world of literature, all whilst knowing you’re doing something to help sustain our planet!

Another positive use of plastic at The Beaufort Bookshop was our Beaufort Brick Club this morning.
