Publisher Comments:

How green can you be?

Green: Drive the speed limit

Greener: Drive a fuel-efficient car

Greenest: Bike or walk

The perfect guide to help readers decide how to best spend their time and money to protect the environment, Green, Greener, Greenest offers flexible tips for everyday living, all categorized as "green," "greener," and "greenest." Cutting through the labeling and the hype, it helps readers choose the advice that fits their schedule, their budget, and their interests, with the understanding that there's never one "right way" to make a difference. This indispensable resource will grow with readers-whether a novice in green living or a veteran environmentalist-as their interests and needs change over time.

Book News Annotation:

Are you the turn off the tap while brushing your teeth type, the low-flow shower head type, or can you go all the way with a low-flow toilet? Environmental journalist Bongiorno gives readers options as she describes how to take small steps toward reducing that pesky carbon footprint. With every topic she gives sets of progressive alternatives, starting with the most basic and advancing toward true grit, starting with food and moving on to beverages, personal care, babies and children, home building and improvement, energy and water, apparel and furnishings, cleaning, yards and gardens, and transportation. The recommendations are flexible and easy to do in small increments, giving readers lots of options and very little guilt. The result is a useful-pocket-sized guide you can use as a reference or even for light (but serious) reading. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
