Is the carbon footprint of a kindle less than books?



  1. 0 Votes

    A recent report set out to answer the same question, and it was successful–sort of. The report found that the Kindle had the carbon footprint of 15 books purchased physically and 30 purchased online. So if you’re planning to buy and read quite a few books on your Kindle, it’s greener. However, some question the accuracy of the report, suggesting that Amazon has not released the amount of emissions created in the manufacturing of the Kindle, suggesting that it could be a far less “green” invention than some think. But if you’re an English teacher or a voracious reader, it’s safe to say that the Kindle is PROBABLY a greener choice.
