The Green Book
The Green Book

Go green! Environmental matters get the star treatment in The Green Book. Authors Elizabeth Rogers and Thomas Kostigen address the fact that Americans endanger the balance of the ecosystem by the amount of waste we produce, the amount of water we use and the amount of energy we consume. Celebrities, including Robert Redford, Ellen DeGeneres, Jennifer Aniston, Faith Hill and Dale Earnhardt Jr., contribute observations and suggestions for living green. In the hope that the glamour of the A-list will make discussion of environmental challenges more palpable, Rogers and Kostigen establish 12 aspects of our habitat, such as home, work, and school, and suggest better lifestyle choices in each arena. Small adjustments in the way we consume and dispose of resources add up to significant and positive environmental effects. Illustrating the results of green actions with descriptive rather than numerical analyses, Rogers and Kostigen write, for example, that if everyone in the U.S. used one less paper napkin per day, in a year's time we would have saved one billion pounds of landfill waste. This is a truly outstanding resource, and one you won't want to live without. The Green Book offers hope and practical suggestions for a greener future! Made in the USA. Wipe clean.
