Sustainability

At the UBC Bookstore we are committed to implementing sustainable practices for the benefit of our customers, our community and our planet.  

Selling reusable bags, reusing and recycling packaging, recycling batteries, making campus deliveries on behalf of our vendors, promoting the use of reusable drinkware, selling used textbooks, offering a course materials rental program, offering electronic course materials, selling a wide range of products made from eco-friendly materials, using biodegradable plastic bags, and actively seeking out locally-made or Canadian-made products to reduce our carbon footprint are just some of the ways we demonstrate our commitment to sustainability. 

We are always looking for opportunities to increase our sustainability credentials and welcome any suggestions or feedback about how we can best do this via ubc.bookstore@ubc.ca.
