Overview

For years, Bob Schildgen (aka "Mr. Green") has been answering real-world questions about green living in his Sierra magazine column. Readers know they're getting up-to-the minute, authoritative responses, backed by the research and experience of the Sierra Club. But they've also come to expect a refreshing dose of common sense-and often a good laugh-because Bob is a funny guy with his feet on the ground.

Now the editors of Sierra have distilled the best of "Hey Mr. Green" into this useful and entertaining book, organized into five chapters: "At Home" offers tips on staying cool, cleaning up, and other domestic details. "Food for Thought" focuses on how to eat and drink better while spending less. "Out and About" covers getting around, fueling up, and enjoying the great outdoors. "The Three Rs" shows you how (and why) to reduce, reuse, and recycle almost everything. "The Big Picture" considers how the environment, politics, religion, and other issues intersect-often at the dinner table. Find your answers in this indispensable, authoritative, opinionated guide to lightening your environmental footprint.
