There are simple but effective ways to encourage sustainability in your household. Whether you make your own compost, reuse plastics to make crafts, or are mindful of recycling items, the steps you take are not only beneficial to the earth, but also beneficial to your child as they learn and grow from your choices.
The Lindenhurst Memorial Library is a proud member of the Green Business Partnership, and we make an effort each day to make greener choices for our library, the community, and our planet. Our library has paper, plastic, and battery recycling, and we make a conscious effort to only order sustainable supplies or utilize recycled supplies in our inventory.
Did you know that many of the craft supplies used in the children and teen departments are eco friendly? From the construction paper to the cups used to hold our glue and paint, we are always thinking about how we can lessen our impact on the world and change our habits for the long term. We aim to buy less, make more and re-use what we already have.
If you are interested in teaching your child about sustainability, start by stopping by our green library and checking out a few of these wonderful picture books. Or check out some of our sustainable programs in our newsletter. Every step towards a sustainable earth makes a difference!
