Eco Encore is raising funds for environmental organizations in the Pacific Northwest by collecting books, CDs, DVDs and recent software, then reselling it online. The organization hopes to cut down on waste and promote the idea of reuse to conserve resources.
For their November Community Book Drive, Eco Encore hopes to gather one ton of books by Nov. 30. The organization sells the items through their online store at amazon.com, then distributes the profits to 15 partner organizations, including the Nature Consortium and Washington Trails Association.
