Publisher Comments:

Now more than ever, teens need to hear a positive message about the economy, and here it is: the eco job market is BOOMING, big time, all over the world. There are jobs for conservation biologists. Jobs for wind-turbine fabricators. Jobs for environmental engineers. Jobs for eco activists. Jobs for green business experts. Jobs for oceanographers. Jobs for air-quality specialists. Jobs for meteorologists. Jobs for eco fashion designers. Jobs for organic chefs. Jobs for you get the picture Now how about some incredible examples to get readers thinking about the possibilities? In this book, we meet inspiring, impassioned young people who love being a part of the environmental job market. Turning worm poop into multi-million-dollar empires. Flying airplanes through hurricanes. Using flowers and trees to brighten the lives of kids and ex-cons. Staring down grizzly bears in the Canadian Rockies. Saving chimps in Tanzania. And strutting their hip eco-friendly frocks on the streets of Hollywood. From the icebergs of the Arctic Ocean to the jungles of Africa, these bold eco pioneers will show readers how to help save the planet and earn a paycheck at the same time.

Review:

"In offbeat, easygoing prose, Scott profiles more than 30 individuals (mostly in their 20s and early 30s) who incorporated their environmental passions into their careers. Examples range from a horticulturalist's work with kids at the Chicago Botanic Garden to a classical pianist who played Carnegie Hall wearing a dress made from 6,000 recycled juice pouches. Informative sidebars and a list of resources encourage readers to adopt green causes, while a color photo insert shows each 'Eco-Pioneer.' An encouraging portrait of a can-do generation. Ages 13 — up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
