ever since Rachel carson's 1962 book Silent Spring sounded the alarm about the effects of pesticides on the environment, countless books have been published that show how human behavior is taking a toll on the planet. Taken together, they present a convincing argument. But even if you want to start living a healthier, more environmentally responsible lifestyle, where do you begin?
That's where Living Green: The Missing Manual comes in. Although this book gives you plenty of reasons to think about your impact on the planet, its real focus is practical suggestions for making your impact a positive one. These pages are packed with tips, ideas, and instructions for greening in all areas of your life: at home, on the road, at work, at the grocery store, and beyond.
You probably picked up this book for one of two reasons: either you're wondering what all the environmentalists are so worked up about (and what it has to do with you) or you're committed to living more responsibly and looking for more ways to put your ideals into practice. either way, this book is for you. You'll get both the whys and the hows of greener living, and learn things you can do today to make the world a better place for everyone—now and for generations to come.
You'll be happy to know that the pages of this book are printed on 100% recycled paper that's made using biogas energy, a renewable fuel source. Every ton of this paper that's manufactured saves 17 trees and over 10,000 gallons of water compared to paper from virgin materials.
