Overview

If you want to go green (or at least find out what all the enthusiasm is about), this book is for you! You'll discover what the green living way of life is all about, what's involved, how it's done, what it means to the planet, and how you can make a real difference!

This fun and informative guide contains everything you need to know to empower yourself to pull up roots and successfully live on the green side-and cultivate it just to your style: from baby steps, to diving right in, or something in between.

As the Earth's climate changes; people use up the planet's natural resources at an alarming rate; the burning of fossil fuels and deforestation pump millions of tons of harmful carbon dioxide into the atmosphere; overloaded freeways and industries pollute the skies; fertile lands dry up; glaciers melt; sea levels rise and flood coasts; and wildlife habitats and ecosystems are destroyed, leaving species endangered and extinct, it is now time for us to give the environment a helping hand.

The Earth gives us everything we need to live healthy lives, but in order to leave that same legacy to our children and grandchildren, we need to do our part now. That's where green living comes in. And the best part: It's easy and fun! And with all of us working together-we can make a real difference.

This fun and informative guide will teach you all about:

* What a great planet the Earth really is
* All the good reasons to go green
* How it will benefit your personal health
* All those great new job opportunities at your fingertips
* How to get cool government tax breaks and rebates
* Why renewable energy is here to stay
* What awesome green technology is out there you can own and use right now and what's on the horizon

You will learn how to:

* Become energy wise and financially smart!
* Keep your home from being an expensive energy hog
* Turn your backyard into a green paradise
* Bring your school, office, and other buildings to greener pastures
* Be more fuel efficient on the highway and save money in the process
* Try something new and exciting: take a green vacation!
* Recycle, reuse, and conserve
* Be a great leader and role model!

And best of all -

Your children and grandchildren will thank you from the bottom of their hearts…
