Recycle This!

I don't know if you've heard but these days recycling is the biggest fad sweeping the nation. It's more awesome then POGS...

In fact, all the cool kids are doing it.  Especially the ones like me, who spent their lunch breaks and recesses reading fantasy novels in the library.  That's right readers can recycle too!
It's called paperbackswap and it's a website where you exchange old, dearly loved books for crisp sparkling new ones (that have been dearly loved by someone else).  How it works?

   1) You post all your books you have to exchange, and get credit for each book.
   2) People request your books, you print out a label, and mail them off.
   3) You receive credit for each book you mail.
   4) Use credits to request and receive books of your own.  Sent to your door!

There are over 2.5 million books to choose from.  So cool.

And if you're too cool to read these days, too tech minded, or just simply enjoy your kicks in 2 hour or less visual packages, there's swapadvd.com as well!

It's the sister site to paperswap and works pretty much the same way.  There's also swapacd and swap-a-friend!  Ok... I made the last one up.  But there is swapagoat.

So are you interested in entertainment in an environmentally friendly way? I bet all those stacks of books, dvds, and cds are looking pretty good to you right now.  And the best part... it's free.  

So go sign-up and tell 'em Team SuperForest (superforestnyc@gmail.com ) sent you.  Then read-swap-and repeat as needed.  

Always merry and bright,
