Thoughts for a Sustainable Future

Yesterday was the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, and to honour the occasion the MRU library has prepared a display on sustainability.  We have Ecopreneuring materials, like The Green Marketing Manifesto by John Grant and 75 Green Businesses by Glenn Croston.  We have awareness titles, such as A Contract with the Earth by Newt Gingrich and Terry L. Maple.  We even have books with small changes anyone can make to decrease their environmental impact, like The Green Year by Jodi Helmer.

We at the library are committed to the environment and feel that everyday is “Earth Day”.  Some of our green initiatives include:

  • double sided printing
  • paper, beverage, and battery recycling
  • electronic requests and reminders
