Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
As the commitment to recycling grows, many enthusiastic households look for additional ways to advance the environmental movement. Stein's book will help them move to the next level. It offers over 300 tips for reusing everyday items and promotes innovative programs like We Care, the dry-cleaning program that replaces plastic bags with reusable fabric garment bags. Stein, an environmental activist and technical writer, presents her readable, practical ideas in an organized fashion. Alphabetical arrangement makes her book easy to use, and helpful resources are included at the end of many tips. Appendixes also include lists of relevant publications and organizations. Environmentally friendly and cost-saving tips are always popular, but reuse is not a new concept. Books on the green lifestyle and frugality proliferate and include many of the ideas presented here. Recommended for public libraries wishing to update their collections.Bonnie Poquette, Appleton P.L., Wis.
