Sell Your Textbooks at Barnes & Noble & Support Green Unity

Green Unity will be collecting electronics and other hard to recycle items at the Barnes & Noble textbook buyback event next week:

Tuesday, May 8th - Thursday, May 10th
Shafer Dining Hall Location

We'll also be selling our fantastic Green Unity Water Bottles, Rain Barrels, Green Unity T-shirts (now in grey, black, and new chocolate brown color), as well as unveiling our new worm composting bins and larger rolling compost bins to help raise funds for our community outreach efforts. We will also be giving away free trees, compliments of the Arbor Day Foundation and VCU Goes Green.

Barnes and Noble is make this a green event by doing away with almost all of their paper advertising, and supporting the use of reusable bags by giving away this fantastic tote. Not only that, but for every textbook you sell back to them, they will donate one vegetable plant to support our Union Hill Community Garden Project, where we help plant vegetable and flower gardens for low-income families, so that they can have access to cheap, organic, nutritious food.

We hope you'll also join us this Thursday, 10:30am-1:30pm for another Union Hill Community Garden Project. We'll be meeting at 871 N 22ND ST to maintain our wonderful apple trees we planted last year, and hopefully plant some new trees and flowers to beautify the neighborhood and provide much-needed shade in this high pedestrian traffic neighborhood.
