"This book is for people who want to do something to lighten their impact on the planet. The small steps cost us little in the way of effort, money or time, but the cumulative effects can be enormous."
"Everything you need to know to make green, non-toxic, Earth-friendly consumer choices – and to be a bang-up planetary citizen – is in this book. Its comprehensiveness is mind-boggling! My fondest hope is that a well-thumbed copy becomes a fixture in every Canadian home."
—Rick Smith, Executive Director, Environmental Defence

Although I've been recycling for years and shop as little as possible, I'm not a staunch environmentalist. Yet, this book made me realize there's many more eco-friendly things I can do. While plenty of information is given, Adria also provides many useful websites for further information, though how many of these websites will be around three years from now is anyone's guess. Still, given the growing concern for our planet, there will always good information somewhere on the Net. Do yourself and your children a huge favour. Buy the book, try some of those tips, and help make this planet a little better.
Without being preaching, it offers countless tips on how you can live a healthier lifestyle while having less of an impact on planet Earth.
The book is organized in practical themes which allow for a reading by clusters, as well as going back to a certain chapter before heading for a shopping trip... it will allow you to make an informed decision as a consumer.
The writing style is witty, there is a good use of textboxes...
One of the best books I have ever put my hands on.
