Recyclivre.com is an online marketplace selling second-hand books and creating solidarity bonds between communities with different accessibility to books and culture.
Thanks to Recyclivre, used books end up neither in the attic, nor in the recycling bin, nor in landfills. Recyclivre provides individuals, companies and communities with a free collection service and gives books a second life by selling them online.
Recyclivre participates in:
- reducing waste (by changing a book’s owner instead of trashing it)
- fighting exclusion (by employing people excluded from the labour market)
- fighting illiteracy (by funding dedicated programs in France and elsewhere).
Since its foundation, Recyclivre has contributed to the employment of more than 45 people on social integration contracts and has been redistributing 10% of net sales to nonprofits fighting illiteracy or protecting the planet.
