This link was called to my attention by [livejournal.com profile] rebelfilms: Book-Cycle.

Its availability and range of service seems to be pretty localized to Exeter, Brighton and thereabouts, but still - it would be nice to support the effort in some way. They're basically an open-source-style bookstore.

Their motto is "From Tree to Book and Back Again" derived from the fact that they rescue unwanted saplings from nurseries, and offer them to people to take with the books.

"You may take up to three books, three trees and spend up to three hours on the internet per day, and pay whatever you wish. Everything we do is on a donations only basis."

From http://www.book-cycle.org/FAQ

"Q: How does it work?

A: You may take up to three books, three trees and spend up to three hours on the internet per day, and pay whatever you wish. Everything we do is on a donations only basis.

Q: Are you serious?

A: Yes, really, you can pay whatever you wish, for all our products and services.

Q: How much do people usually pay?

A: We give you no indication of what other people pay. You pay whatever the books are worth to you! We have no idea of your means so can not tell you how much you should pay.

...

Q: Do the staff get paid?

A: No-one gets paid for any part of their work at Book-Cycle. Book-Cycle is run completely by volunteers.
