JUNK.com.au is in the midst of distributing over 100 books into the Streets Library foundation , as it strives to be more than just a rubbish removal service. Over the past week JUNK.com.au’s workforce has begun spreading the literacy love across all of Geelong.
JUNK.com.au aims to include a unique community element to its service. Through months worth of jobs they’ve collected hundreds of unwanted books. Now these books will get another lease on life and be repurposed to a new home. Instead of going into landfill they’ve been saved for the Streets Library initiative.
They hope to help the Streets Library achieve its two major goals:
1) To encourage literacy
Sometimes people need an escape from their everyday lives. Books have the power to transport people to a different world, experience the impossible, and unlock people’s potential.
JUNK.com.au hopes that by rolling out these books, a little child with none in their house can pass by a local Street Library and discover a new world of opportunities.
2) To encourage community
Encouraging community engagement has always been a passion of JUNK.com.au. It continues to be a driving factor in its hiring process.
When it comes to distributing recycled books, JUNK.com.au knew the Street Library was the perfect organisation to help bring neighbourhoods together, all over Australia.
When people are taking a book and leaving a book, they create a cycle of generosity that allows them to share what they love with those around them.
By participating in the Street Library movement, you’re helping encourage reading, sharing, and a community spirit.
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP:
JUNK.com.au shares the Street Library’s vision of increasing literacy levels in Australian children.
In the hope of continuing the rollout of books to Street Libraries, JUNK.com.au encourages anyone who has books they don’t want anymore, to drop them off to the JUNK Office (116 Furner Avenue, Bell Park), for redistribution.
At JUNK.com.au we’re not just a rubbish removal business… We’re a small business thinking big about children’s literacy.
