HPB Goes Plastic Bag Free by 2023

Half Price Books will be Plastic Bag Free by 2023! As part of its 50th anniversary celebration, Half Price Books is honoring its company mission of taking care of the environment with this commitment to eliminate the use of single-use plastic bags at our stores nationwide.

Beginning Earth Day 2022, plastic bags will be available by request only at our stores across the country and, and we will ultimately phase out single use plastic bags by next year.

“Half Price Books has created a tried-and-true business out of sustainable reading,” said Kathy Doyle Thomas, president of Half Price Books. “We realize that single-use plastic bags are a big problem for the environment, and we’re doing what we can by offering customers the opportunity to partner with us in creating a greener footprint.” 

So put those reusable bags in the car and head on over to your local HPB!
