Its goal is to build awareness amongst the students that they can do their bit by recycling textbooks and in turn make India a greener place. In the process they also save money. facilitates recycling of textbooks by planting a tree every time a student uses its service. The model works similar to a library where students/ customers rent textbooks for a limited period of time and return the books. Students rent the books online and people from deliver and collect it from their homes. Traditionally textbooks are either purchased or sold to the second hand market or to the roadside Raddiwalas. is trying to streamline this fragmented market and aligning it with a social responsibility model using technology.
