Based in Sharon, Mass., Big Hearted Books & Clothing Inc. collects unwanted media, including books, records, CDs, video games and DVDs all throughout New England, and redistributes them to people who can use them. In 2014, the firm expanded its collection services to include clothing & shoes. Big Hearted Books & Clothing Inc. plans to use the additional revenue earned from the sale of clothing to help fund its book program.
Established in 2009, Big Hearted Books & Clothing Inc. keeps more than 5000 tons of books out of landfills annually. Ninety percent of the books collected by Big Hearted Books & Clothing are repurposed. They are sold wholesale or on-line or given to groups in need, such as prisons, senior centers, kindergartens and town libraries. Big Hearted Books & Clothing Inc. not only shares its love of books, but also shares its profits from the sale of books with the hosts of our collection containers.
