No brainer tips, in a bad way
When I read the first chapter, I was like 'well these are interesting facts,' but each chapter was nearly an emulation of the last, using the same grammar each time. On top of that, the ideas are painfully obvious, stating things like 'take shorter showers.' They also give 'dreamworld' stats claiming how much we would save if x number of people used their idea. Their stats a merely a pipedream, and do not come close to reality.

A waste of recycled paper
I was very disappointed with this book and I'm very glad I borrowed it from the library instead of buying it. I gives VERY basics tips on how to 'go green' but after each over simplified tip, it lists how that tip can add up (ie. If everyone in the world changed one light bulb,....) and it got really old after the 200th tip and matching world changing statistic. I wished they would have gone into more detail with each tip. I felt the book lacked the 'meat' and was just fluff. The whole last 40 pages or so are just the resources used to write the book. I'd say skip this book and read something with more substance like 'Organic Housekeeping'.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
