The Green@Home DIY Toolkit Available NOW at the Cupertino Library

Posted on Tuesday, September 18, 2012 by Cupertino_Library

The City of Cupertino and the Cupertino Library, a member of the Santa Clara County Library District, have teamed up to bring you a new, free, eco-friendly service – the Green@Home Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Toolkit!


This kit makes cutting energy and water costs at home as easy as checking out a book from the library.

Cupertino Library patrons can now check out a Green@Home DIY Toolkit for one week and use the kit’s tools to install a range of FREE utility conserving devices, also provided in the kit (the devices are yours to keep!). Users can expect to save, on average, $200 per year after installing the DIY Toolkit’s equipment, which includes CFL light bulbs, faucet aerators, a low-flow shower head, weather stripping, and more.

The Green@Home DIY ToolKit also includes an easy “how-to”installation guide, complete with short URLs and QR Code links to interactive videos, to help residents navigate points of action in their homes, as well as tips on decoding utility bills and how to calculate your savings.

Swing by the Cupertino Library to borrow a kit to start saving energy, water and money!
