    "While the councils of Borough of Queenscliffe, City of Greater Geelong, Colac Otway Shire, Golden Plains Shire and Surf Coast Shire could have made a simple flier or app letting people knowing about their local recycling program these councils through Think Recycle went well beyond what was expected. Not only does it have all the information you'd expect they even included a game to help you know how to sort your rubbish for kerbside pickup."

    "I used this app to keep track of some of the utilities used around the house. It can track water usage, for example. It can help reduce utilities use, thereby saving you money. You can really get into the data and figure out how to limit utility consumption when needed. You can review the weekly consumption data, too."

    "I had some old cell phones and really old laptops laying around and didn't want to throw them away, so I started looking for ways to recycle them and I came across the iRecycle app. It shows you various ways you can get rid of old items properly depending on your location. It's so easy to use, too! "

    "I like having an app trying to give me options what are the better alternatives on my daily choices on products. I would question the company's morals though, if they can decline a product paying them good sums of money to promote a not-so-green product."

    "I absolutely could not live without this app. No more getting up to adjust the thermostat when I am cold or change my music. I can just sit and relax and use my phone. Since my phone is already with me wherever I go, it is just a common sense solution to being able to use it for controlling my home. Dimming the lights when my daughter is getting tired by just a push of my phone rather than having to leave her side, means she is not disturbed by me. I had not even considered those types of small benefits when getting this app. I would highly recommend it. "

    "Finally a great idea to extend battery life! Love the way it automatically manages my wifi and mobile data. Battery saving works with any device which is so helpful since I'm always using different devices. The fact that it automatically turns on when I need it or when other apps need it is ingenious "

    "I got this app and I am still trying to understand the point. It has information about what fish should and should not be eaten due to things like over fishing. It also has a list of eateries that sell a better selection of fish that they think is good to eat. I mean does it really matter because the fish you can buy is already caught and there for you to buy. I do not think this app will help save the planet one fish at a time. "

    "This a wonderful and very helpful app when trying to sort thru all the various green products and services on the market. It's a great clearinghouse to find things that you can use every day and will be kind to the planet. It's really a must have when you're shopping and aren't exactly sure about a product's claims about being green. Well worth the download. "
