Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Can we ``change the world one diaper at a time?'' Discussing ``Biobottoms'' ``Baby Bunz,'' and cloth diaper companies, as well as ``Rainforest Crunch'' ice cream and ``Styrotrash,'' this book gives practical information on products and companies to consumers who wish to be more environmentally aware (``green'') in their purchases. Originally published in England, this has been revised for American audiences and includes an overview of green consumerism, a guide to products and companies, an up-to-date green bibliography, and a directory of environmental organizations. Future editions/updates are planned. Recommended for all public libraries. See also Diane MacEachern's Save Our Planet , reviewed in this issue, below.--Ed.-- Diane M. Brown, Univ. of California Lib., Berkeley
It's a deadly mistake to think that consumption is the answer to consumption, but for those who aren't ready to switch from surplus to sustenance this is an appealing guide to the environmentally safer but no less attractive consumer products.
