Books for Africa


Cool to see Books for Africa celebrating their 30 year anniversary! 

We give them textbooks that help with their mission of spreading literacy and access to education across Africa. 

They have an ongoing need for newer textbooks. If you have books from a recent class that you took please consider our drop boxes a great place to bring them!

To date we've donated thousands of textbooks.

Women of Mount Zion Temple


For the past 7 years we have worked with the Women of Mount Zion to maximize the proceeds of their annual Garage Sale by donating thousands of books. 

Their garage sale held every Summer is one of the highlights of the garage sale season in St Paul. The shopping is incredible! If you haven't checked it out - you should!

Also a great opportunity for you to de-clutter a bit for a great cause.

International Paper


We chose International Paper for our book recycling because they are very local for an international company!

They pick up our recycling with trucks from Roseville employing driver's that live in the neighborhood.

They process and sell locally as well. We've found them to be the greenest option.

Choice Plastics


Plastic recycling had become a real challenge for us when we switched recycling vendors recently. 

We're happy to work with Choice in Mound, MN who does a great job of taking our CD and DVD recycling and turning it into to feeder stock for new products.
