Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As interest in living a sustainable life has exploded, so has the green marketplace. It has become difficult to distinguish companies that provide truly eco-friendly products and services from those that greenwash. Now, from the company that founded Organic Gardening when eating close to the land was far from mainstream and published Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth, comes this timely guide to all things green.

Modeled on the classic Whole Earth Catalog, the touchstone for an earlier generation, Whole Green Earth Catalog is poised to become the bible of green living for the 68 million Americans — about one-third of U.S. adults — who now take environmental and social issues into account when they make purchases. Leading experts in every imaginable category — from home furnishings and appliances to clothing and children's toys, from pets and beauty products to travel and investing — share their authoritative tips, reviews, and advice. Whole Green Earth Catalog provides succinct answers to such questions as: Can one go green and save money? Can people reduce their carbon footprint if they are business travelers? Is there an environmentally friendly disposable diaper? Beautifully packaged with more than 1,000 photographs and illustrations, and manufactured with 100 percent post-consumer waste materials, this volume is the perfect gift for those who care about the future of the planet.
