20606 20606

ABOOKSTORE in northern Italy (意大利) is giving out books to children when they bring in plastic bottles and drinks cans. The bookstore owner said it is to encourage kids to read and also to protect the environment.
The bookstore-cum-caf? Ex Libris is in a town nearby Salerno, and the owner Michele Gentile said that his goal is to encourage his fellow Italians to fall in love with books and help protect the environment. He hopes to spread his efforts across the country.
Gentile said he got the inspiration to exchange recyclables for books when he came across a huge pile of metal scraps in a field. The pile was worth about 300 to 400 Euros (HK$2,660 to $3,500), which is the cost of one year’s supply of textbooks for a secondary student in Italy.
