In April, during the Green Living display, Maple Grove Library elicited comments from patrons regarding how they practice green living. Here are their very useful responses:
“I turn thermostat down to 65 or 66 degrees at night.”
“I recycle used printer cartridges.”
“I recycled make up containers by giving them back to the manufacture if they will accept them.”
“I recycle bottles, newspapers, cans, cardboard, paper etc.”
“We try to buy recycled products.”
“We replace all our light bulbs for a smarter, greener tomorrow.”
“I recycle all I can—bring reusable bags when shopping and have computer and entertainment on power strips we turn off.”
“I reduce, reuse and recycle daily whenever possible and encourage others to do the same— I shop at thrift stores, recycle all paper and plastics.  I cut $25.00 off my electric bill by shutting off my power strip into which my home entertainment system is plugged whenever I’m not using it.  I unplug anything that I am not using right then including lights, lamps, the toaster, you name it!”
“We recycle more things.”
“We compost yard waste and fruit and vegetable trimmings.”
“I unplug all charger cords after device is charged up.  Even the charger cords pull a small amount of electricity.”
“I check out materials about green living from library displays!

Thank you to everyone who participated.
