Book News Annotation:

Shop at Wal-Mart or drive 30 miles away to the nearest independent hardware store? Buy imported organic berries or local non-organic? Buy clothing made in Asia by underpaid workers, or made in America by a company that is anti-union? What's a good liberal to do? Hawthorne, an award-winning journalist, offers no answers to these tough questions; on the contrary, she claims that consumer decisions make less of a difference, and that national legislation is the only way to have an impact and change the world. Her discussions of socially responsible consuming and investing draw on interviews with activists and ordinary consumers, from officials at PETA and the AFL-CIO to radical EcoMoms and a rabinical group that has redefined kosher. There is no subject index. The author has written three previous books on health care and investing. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

With a welcome mixture of facts and humor, Hawthorne highlights the dilemmas of living an environmentally virtuous, healthy life in a fiercely consumption-oriented culture.--Michael F. Jacobson, Ph.D., Center for Science in the Public Interest.
