Bring law to re-use text books, save trees and reduce cost of education in India

This petition had 315 supporters

Re-using the text books in government and all private schools, colleges and universities alike reduce large amount of trees being cut down for the paper and also avoid cost of printing. This reduction increases greenery in the environment and thus trees can bring in good rain which is currently depleting by day. Libraries can maintain re-issuing and collect back these books from students and charge a nominal fee for lending for the academic year they use. This avoids parents spending huge amount of money to purchase the books and this would make education automatically more affordable across the country.
