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)
