bookmans180-150We believe it is our responsibility as a company to be compassionate citizens of the planet. We are continually striving to reduce our carbon footprint and are big supporters of various green events including the Tucson Green Festival, Tucson Earth Day Festival, and Pima County’s Clean Air Days. Awareness of environmental issues is part of our very business model: Every time you trade in or make a purchase at Bookmans Entertainment Exchange, you’re recycling. Each item that is brought through our doors and placed on a shelf reflects the decision of a single individual to take a stand against unnecessary and harmful waste. Chances are you’ve never thought of shopping for used media in terms of green, but for more than 30 years our customers have been contributing to the environment by sharing their unwanted books, music, movies, magazines, and games with the Bookmans community.
