Summary of interview with Dustin Holland at Better World Books

This interview is one of the companies that will be featured in my upcoming book on Climate Action Teams.

Better World Books is a truly amazing company that is making a difference in the world. The company was started by 3 guys selling their old textbooks with the intention to create a company with a built-in social benefit. Every time you buy a book from Better World Books, they make a book donation to someone in need. The company has donated over 20 million books to people in countries all over the world, making an incredibly positive impact. In addition, the company employs nearly 500 associates in three countries, has donated over $24 million dollars to libraries and literacy causes around the world and has prevented close to 240 million books from becoming landfill. It is truly a triple bottom line company focused on the circular economy.

Today I’m talking to Dustin Holland, the Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing at Better World Books. He’s been with the company for 12 years and started as the national director of the library program.
