Enviromental Issues

My dad doesn’t like me buying lots of physical books. Why? Not because of the money, although he has asked me to calm down a little bit and not spend 100 to 200 euros a month, but because of the environmental impact of all the paper. Now, I consider myself a reasonably responsible person and I like to do my part in stopping ourselves from killing this world but I also really love books. Like a lot. And I love having physical books. In addition to this we also move a lot and books take up a lot of space that we have to pay for in the lorry if we go over what the company pays for. It is sad and I won’t stop buying physical books but I am trying to cut back a little bit. Besides, I do still like my Kindle, I just like physical books too. Also, I try to look out for the little FSC recycled paper mark on the back of books too!

What do you think about this topic?

P.S. I’m pretty sure this counts as a #Readerproblem.

    I have a lot of soft copy books but nothing beats holding a physical book. No matter how much ebooks I get, I’ll never stop buying paperbacks. I just can’t.
