Sometimes it is a financial sacrifice to make choices that support sustainability, and reduce our environmental footprint. Not this time. Have you checked into the cost of textbooks lately? You will save, save, save if you take a few moments to plan and research some viable secondhand options for textbooks and school supplies. It's not just for Uni books anymore either.

Australia's number one website for secondhand school items allows you to register and search for sale ads for free. Buyers and sellers contact each other directly, and arrange where and when to transact.

Used by more than 400 schools across Australia, Sustainable School Shop is Australia's largest "stockist" of secondhand secondary textbooks; of course you hold the stock; trade with families from your school or other schools in your area, and save on the cost of uniforms and school supplies.

From 1 October to 25 November, 2014, Sustainable School Shop traded 20,000 text books, and in late November, they had almost 2,000 text book trades in one day alone (statistic reported on their Facebook page).

It is free to register and search all the For Sale ads; and only costs $1 to list an advertisement, or $19.95 for a one-year, unlimited subscription. They do not take commissions on the sale of the items. Sustainable School Shop provides excellent email and telephone helplines, and are a genuine, Australian designed, owned, and operated business serving students and families.

Do the math, and start saving on school supplies by registering with Sustainable School Shop.
