    "I have learned to become much more minimalist in my life. Before taking on any new commitments or objects, I ask myself is this entirely necessary to meet my goals or needs. I have learned that it is much more possible to say no to things than before. This has benefited my greatly in having fewer resources to recycle."

    "This wasn't really a good way to spend my money. The book brought up a good topic, but it's not applicable to enough people to make a difference in their lives. Spend the money on a recycling bin and you'll be better off."

    "Cradle to Cradle is an interesting and noble concept, I cannot help thinking this book is being over dramatic. What they suggest is already the case for a lot of items whether they were designed to be re-used or not, people are innovative. I suppose I would need to read the whole book to have a proper grasp on their premise but my initial thoughts are skeptical."

    "Recycle Nation has a lot of different types of information about recycling - articles, a search for recycling locations depending on what you want to recycle, information about labels and ISRI, and different ways to connect to it. I liked that I could look up categories or specific items and find places near me on a Google map, though it took me a bit to figure out where to put in my zip. I never realized so many things could be recycled and there were so many places nearby that do it."

    "The site gives detailed, but simply worded explanations on the steps involved in preparing compost. It told me how to build a bin, as well as materials to use and not use in preparing the compost pile. It also offers suggestions for specialty options in case standard composting procedures do not work for your goals. I found the site useful for its user-friendly summary of how compost works, and felt it walked me through my first attempt at recycling using the process."

So with this app I feel that I have more opportunities and ideas to recycle my used trash and products. This is very cool and hip for the green trend that is apart of society today!"
