Sustainable Shopping

Follett has set a goal to reduce our in-store shopping bag consumption by more than 50 percent this fiscal year. This fall alone, our network of more than 900 stores will prevent 3.5 million bags from entering our landfills and waterways. To achieve this goal our campus stores will only supply bags for customers who request them. Though bags will always be available, we are confident our customers will support this initiative.

Rent-a-Text is a lower cost option for obtaining the materials needed for your classes! For more information about this program contact the Florida SouthWestern State College Bookstore on your campus, or visit the Rent-A-Text website from the image above.
