In the e-reader vs traditional books debate, these would definitely fall under traditional books. Except that they’re not. Waterproof, extremely durable, and recyclable, durabooks are looking really cool. Did you know that traditional paper is only recyclable to a certain extent? Once the fibers get recycled so many times they are no longer suitable for paper products and must be disposed of. So, even though these durabooks are plastic, they make more sense in the long term than traditional paper. Because they are infinitely recyclable, some even call them upcyclable.
