Offering a large line of green items, Appalachian's University Bookstore is a locally-owned store employing local residents and university students. Shopping at the bookstore contributes to our local economy.
The University Bookstore supports Appalachian's commitment to sustainability and has a wide offering of environmentally-friendly products from which to choose. Undergraduates can rent textbooks instead of buying them, reducing potential waste and helping students save money.
The University Bookstore offers shoppers: reusable water bottles, environmentally friendly color pencils, art supplies made with 100% windpower, recycled notebooks, recycled office paper, environmentally friendly binders, recycled notecards, environmentally friendly computer bags and "sustain Appalachian" T-shirts made of 50% recycled plastic bottles and 50% organic cotton.
