If you noticed many students in college are getting their textbooks from either Amazon or another website which has their textbook listed online. Real textbooks are made up of multiple hundreds of pages of information, but this information is being written on paper. Writing a textbook on all paper takes so many pages that it can be harmful to the environment and cost more money. Which would you rather be using? Would you rather be using a textbook that is online or a textbook that has been printed into a real book?

The issue here is that it takes so many pieces of paper to write just one textbook. A regular class of college students has at least 50 to 100 students in that class. If the average textbook takes around 300 to 400 pages or more, you can see how this can be damaging to the environment and end up costing a lot more money. Some students have a ready learned that by buying textbooks online through Amazon, Chega, Kindle and other websites you can save almost half the money you would originally be spending on a real textbook.

We are advocating for all textbooks to be switched to being electronic textbooks. Not only will the switch help reduce the cost of textbooks, but it will also be saving the environment by reducing waste and reducing the amount of paper used. The only concern we have is some teachers refuse to allow their students to use textbooks online instead of real life textbooks. This is unfair and is only hurting the environment and the student’s wallet. What side would you be on? Do you support textbooks? Or do you support electronic textbooks?

For every textbook that is bought and in stores you are essentially supporting at least 600 pages on average to be wasted. Many textbooks can only be used for that year as they are constantly being upgraded to new versions. All the old tax end up just going in the trash or are recycled, however, if you take a closer look at electronics textbooks they almost have zero waste and are quite affordable. So, why wouldn’t you want to make the switch? Electronic textbooks give you instant access to all of the same information, and you can even highlight, search, and bookmark any pages that you would a normal book.

In conclusion, electronic tech books are the better option when it comes to learning. They save the environment and our eco-friendly. They are less expensive than traditional textbooks. And they do not cost as much money as regular textbooks. Not only they have all these benefits, but they also give you instant access to all the information you need. Perform searches, highlight, copy and paste all the information you need from your textbook into any other document to write your notes. This is why we believe electronic textbooks are the best way to go when it comes to purchasing textbooks.
