At Reuseabook we take our corporate social responsibility very seriously. It’s not something we do to maintain a good public face, it is woven into the fabric of the business, written on every page of our story. It is who we are. Below is a snapshot of some of causes that we are pleased to support.
The Ape Alliance started as an international coalition of organisations and individuals, working for the conservation and welfare of apes. Based in Stroud, it is Reuseabook’s environmental charity of choice. Reuseabooks supports this charity by sending out an Ape’s Alliance bookmark with every individual reader purchase.

So we took them 25kg of English books. Lessons in the desert
