The very first second-hand bookstore in Luxembourg promotes sustainability, a circular economy and affordable access to education.
Was your New Year’s resolution to find out more? Well you’re in luck, because the very first Luxembourg second-hand bookstore has launched online under the name The Green Library.
The Green Library offers the people of Luxembourg the opportunity to buy and sell pre-loved books, while encouraging sustainability and the joys of reading.
From the first month of launch, the online bookstore already had more than 150 volumes in English, French and German. Unlike traditional bookstores, The Green Library offers customers the opportunity to earn money from the sale of their pre-loved literature.
The initiative helps reduce waste while making education more accessible, as books are sold up to 50% cheaper than new editions. Purchased books are shipped right to your door in convenient, recycled packaging, which means buying a book has never been easier or more environmentally friendly!
“I found the solution when I realized there was no simple, local option to buy or sell your used books. I found it incredible that no one in Luxembourg has yet created this kind of initiative. After thinking for a month, I decided to get started on the project. We have already been contacted by over 20 people to sell their books in our store within the first month. »Irina Roman, founder of The Green Library.
The Green Library aims to become the Luxembourg reference for books. With the reuse and resale market booming in recent years, it is only a matter of time before more retailers turn to a more circular economy.
