Movingbooks also support Go Green program by reducing the amount of paper used for new books printing. Claudia Thompson, in her book, Recycled Papers: The Essential Guide (Cambridge, MA: MIT Press, 1992), reported that Tom Soder, then a graduate student in the Pulp and Paper Technology Program at the University of Maine, has calculated that based on a mixture of softwoods and hardwoods that are about 40 feet tall and six to eight inches in diameter, it would take a rough average of 24 trees to produce one ton of printing and writing paper by using the kraft chemical (freesheet) pulping process.

hai Anggi,
a couple months ago i got a message via Line from someone who offered me a program to send a book to the address he provides, and then soon or later i'll get five books. But, you know? it's kinda complicated, why? due to fact that i had to send through the package of course it will consume my energy and time. This is very unfortunate; besides, i particularly liked and fully supports the program. So, after i read the whole idea you listed above that i think it's pretty obvius, i feel so very interesting! that's an awesome idea!, so go ahead, i'll support you from behind

P.s maybe you would like to follow up the account that is in Line Application, i.e Books for life. I think this account will be the same feeling what i feel after hearing your Ideas and they will sustain you like i do. I can bet for that!
