Let's face it: As we wake up to the citizens of the earth, we need direction. Recycling is a great start, but if we want to really reduce pollution and conserve natural resources, we need to master state-of-the-art knowledge about products, materials, furnishings, and installation methods. The Ecofriendly Home helps you to achieve that laudable goal without turning your house into an industrial-looking eyesore. Combining ecology, creativity, and technology, author Dan Phillips teaches readers to transform their living quarters into homes that are friendly to all living things.
