Lori Bongiorno, a journalist, became interested in the environment and the safety of products when her husband got melanoma and died from the cancer. She writes that she learned from her husband's experience that preventing disease is preferable to trying to cure a disease. With preventing disease on her mind, she wrote Green Greener Greenest, providing the reader with a phletora of tools to stay healthy. Unlike a number of recently published green books, Green Greener Greenest is well researched and offers much information for those seeking a green lifestyle. Bongiorno offers environmentally sound choices in food, beverages, personal care products, green choices for babies and children, home building and improvement, apparel and furnishings, cleaning, pest control and transportation. Within each chapter, I really like how she 'decodes labels' the often confusing, sometimes misleading labels that come with many products. Like a good journalist, she did her homework, providing much research and information to help the reader understand the problems in environmentally unsafe products and to let them decide for themselves what level of green they wish to live by. I felt that the chapters on home building and improvements and furnishings could have had more information, but it did provide a good starting point. For example, Bongiorno does not discuss the green choices in flooring other than marginally acceptable greener carpeting. I highly recommend this book.
