Green Living for Dummies based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This book is great in that you learn the good and bad of every choice we make that impacts the environment around us, but I have to say going green is harder than a onetime read of vast information. It will require continuous research.
This book covers a vast amount of information in the typical Dummy fashion. If you know nothing about living a green lifestyle, Green Living for Dummies will teach you the basics and lots more. Because of the breadth of this book, virtually everyone will learn from it. The book begins like most green living books do, with an overview of the importance of being green for our deeply troubled Earth. However, unlike most eco-friendly books I've read, this one covers the gamut: Green at Home: includes a section on detecting and banishing health hazards like asbestos and lead.Basics on green remodeling and building and on green cleaning. Chapter on garbage. This was great, as part of the problem is the proper disposal of unwanted stuff. Includes how and what to recycle, including what to do with the problematic computers and cell phones. Chapter on growing your own food. The chapter on how to purchase the best green and ethical food was excellent. Subsequent chapters included green clothing, ethical investments, donations and banking. Transportation, green travel... Even working in a green environment was covered. Like I said, a green soup to nuts books. Lots of good, current information. Highly recommended.
