Books4Beer event teaches Manchester students the value of recycling


Manchester students will appreciate the value of recycling next week when they are able to swap a course book they no longer need for entry into a top party and a voucher for a free beer.

The first Books4Beer event is taking place in association with Flirt, the UK's number one student night, held at Manchester Metropolitan University's (MMU) Student Union from 10:30pm on Tuesday, February 6.

The 'green' initiative is being run in conjunction with Sell Student Books.com, the new Manchester-based Web site that enables graduates and students to buy and sell second-hand academic books.

"Books4Beer is all about showing students that there is value in books that they no longer use, and that they can help the environment by reducing demand for new books to be printed," said Sell Student Books.com founder, Mark Fraser.

"By swapping a course book at the door, they will be able to save money on entry and beer. Thinking green doesn't just apply to helping to save the planet - it's about saving cash too."

Graduates are leaving university with an average debt of £13,252 but, thanks to Sell Student Books.com, they can now make money by selling old books to hard-up students, who, in turn, benefit from big savings when buying.

Sell Student Books.com has a database of 700,000 books covering every college and university course in the UK.

Ends.
