Publisher Comments:

 “365 Ways to Save the Earth . . . and savor its fragile beauty, in this stunning photo guide.”                                   —Time

“A book of high art thats educational and thought-provoking.”—The Standard

 

In recent years, concerns about the environment and global warming have moved to the forefront of public consciousness and now play a significant role in our everyday lives. Because our understanding of the steps we need to take to make a positive impact have evolved rapidly, Abrams is updating its successful title 365 Ways to Save the Earth.

 

In this book, each spread includes a breathtaking photograph of nature paired with an action the reader can take to help save the earth. It tackles subjects ranging from automobile use and recycling to shopping and leisure and health and the workplace. With 145 previously unseen images by Bourseiller and an entirely new text based on up-to-the-minute environmental research, this book is an indispensable tool for anyone hoping to take part in preserving the planet.

Synopsis:

Throughout his award-winning photographic career, Philippe Bourseiller has recorded the splendors of untamed nature, from the immensities of the ice floe to the fury of the volcano, from the vast open spaces of Patagonia to the aridity of the Sahara. This experience has given him unique insight into both the richness and the fragility of our environment. In 365 Ways to Save the Earth, he takes the reader on a daily journey through our planet, revealing its hidden face.

For every day of the year he presents a stunning photograph and a simple, environment-friendly action that enables the reader to participate in the protection of planet Earth. Philippe Bourseiller is a true field photographer whose talents as a climber, caver, and diver enable him to move easily through the extreme environments that he frequents and, as we see in these pages, return with extraordinary images.
