    One of THE BEST on the topic

    I've read ,or at least skimmed, most environmentalism books to come through the bookstore where I work, and can say this seems to touch on almost every level, from clothes made with organic cotton (I really never understood why this was important!), to food choices, to where we do our shopping and why it matters, etc... Many other books have more of an agenda (''Buy eco-designer bags and still be a hottie!''), but this one is made to simply inform and make suggestions that can improve your life and the environment. This is a great book to pick up to learn a little about the many aspects green living, and if you find something you'd like to know more about, there are a lot of other specific books on the market. This should be part of anyones green library.
