Shine On, Save Trees, Upcycle Books!

Shine On to sustain books in schools

At the end of the school year schools and parents dispose of hundreds of textbooks that are no longer usable. It wastes paper, time and money to replace these each year.

Here we create a system, a product, and a community movement to recycle, up cycle, strengthen and reuse textbooks and workbooks for schools and parents.

Save time, save money, save trees and save water!
