Overview

The Green Nonprofit: The First 52 Weeks of Your Green Journey is for nonprofit leaders who want to:

--Reduce environmental impact and save money;
--Quickly implement basic energy- and water-saving strategies;
--Create a green team to help generate and implement green ideas; and
--Outline a sustainability plan that matches your strategic goals.

To help you begin your journey, Sarah Brophy provides a two-step/two-week approach to get the word out and help you find helpers. Fifty-two weeks is a long time to work alone on an effort as important as greening your nonprofit. From the beginning, Brophy shows how to share what you do and build a team to help.

By breaking the start of your green journey into 52 weekly steps, Brophy makes the journey easy and fun. She rarely uses jargon but when it's important enough to mention, she explains it.

Though this book is for nonprofit practitioners, it's also suitable for anyone in a for-profit business who wants to be environmentally responsible.
