A: “I could go either way. It’s kind of a bummer that you can’t use your own stove, but at the same time it pollutes.”

Angela Sendejas

A: “I guess environmentally, you have to think about all the carbon being released. For some people, it may be an expense issue – it may be cheaper to burn wood than turning on the heater.”

Kevin Delaney

Gilroy

A: “It’s a good thing. I would assume wood burning fire adds to pollution.”

Jorge Martinez

Enrique Luna

A: “It depends on how you look at it. It’s a good thing for the environment, but it’s a bad thing if you have to replace it.”
