Green House: Eco-Friendly Disposal and Recycling at Homeby Norman J Crampton
Synopses & Reviews
The realities of climate change can be overwhelming, but the good news is that-with your help-global warming can be slowed and ultimately stopped. You may already recycle those newspapers and milk cartons, and perhaps you have a compost pile in the backyard. But what about that old inkjet cartridge? Or that scratched CD? Green House: Eco-Friendly Disposal and Recycling at Home is an A to Z guide to disposing and recycling all varieties of common household trash, from broken appliances to spent smoke detectors and cell phones to pet waste. With a sense of humor and an eye towards modern-day practicalities, Norm Crampton discusses the most environmentally-friendly methods of dealing with household waste, and when there are multiple disposal options, he describes the ins and outs of each alternative. Crampton also points out that some trash may be someone else's treasure-some recyclers may pay you for your old cell phone and your cooking grease can become bio-fuel For homeowners and apartment dwellers alike, Green House is a handy little reference book and the first step towards reducing your ecological footprint.
