Overview

Ellen DeGeneres, Robert Redford, Will Ferrell, Jennifer Aniston, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Martha Stewart, Tyra Banks, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Tiki Barber, Owen Wilson, and Justin Timberlake tell you how they make a difference to the environment.

Inside The Green Book, find out how you can too:

- Don’t ask for ATM receipts. If everyone in the United States refused their receipts, it would save a roll of paper more than two billion feet long, or enough to circle the equator fifteen times!

- Turn off the tap while you brush your teeth. You’ll conserve up to five gallons of water per day. Throughout the entire United States, the daily savings could add up to more water than is consumed every day in all of New York City.

- Get a voice-mail service for your home phone. If all answering machines in U.S. homes were replaced by voice-mail services, the annual energy savings would total nearly two billion kilowatt hours. The resulting reduction in air pollution would be equivalent to removing 250,000 cars from the road for a year!

With wit and authority, authors Elizabeth Rogers and Thomas Kostigen provide hundreds of solutions for all areas of your life, pinpointing the smallest changes that have the biggest impact on the health of our precious planet.

    Now it IS easy being green

    Decads ago, Kermit the frog said that 'it ain't easy being green.' The writers of this book present green living in an easy to read and easy to live format. It CAN be easy to be green. I've incorporated several 'green ways' into my family life, and this book has taught me new ways to expand on them.

    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'.

    Buy this and start saving the planet.

    Great book with easy to implement ideas. I just returned from living in Germany for 6 months and they are so far ahead in recycling etc. It made me want to be more earth friendly when I returned to the US. We have made some small but high impact changes in our home and you can too!

    Global Warming Ends Here

    I loved this book! When I looked at the book, I thought to myself that one little deed a day is not going to affect the environment. After I looked further into the book I realized that almost everyone of these deeds saves yourself money and can make you healthier! I loved the ideas and there are many tips in there that can take five minutes to set up and can save you over $50 (electricity bill)!

    how to incorporate environmentally friendlier practices into everyday life

    This book takes a holistic approach to suggesting environmentally sustainable practices regarding, for example, the purchases we make, the food we eat, the money we invest, the vacations we take. Some are very simple suggestions, some more involved and complex. Readers may be overwhelmed by the sheer number of suggestions the book makes and think, 'I can't do ALL this.' Keep in mind, however, that the bottom line is to do something - to do what you can within your means to reduce conspicuous consumption. The book is very insightful for a reader who wonders, maybe for the first time, how to make environmentally sound choices. The internet addresses the book lists are particularly helpful for those seeking more information on the particulars of adopting certain practices.
