    This book covers a vast amount of information in the typical Dummy fashion. If you know nothing about living a green lifestyle, Green Living for Dummies will teach you the basics and lots more. Because of the breadth of this book, virtually everyone will learn from it.

    The book begins like most green living books do, with an overview of the importance of being green for our deeply troubled Earth.

    However, unlike most eco-friendly books I’ve read, this one covers the gamut:

    Green at Home: includes a section on detecting and banishing health hazards like asbestos and lead.Basics on green remodeling and building and on green cleaning.

    Chapter on garbage. This was great, as part of the problem is the proper disposal of unwanted stuff. Includes how and what to recycle, including what to do with the problematic computers and cell phones.

    Chapter on growing your own food.

    The chapter on how to purchase the best green and ethical food was excellent.

    Subsequent chapters included green clothing, ethical investments, donations and banking.

    Transportation, green travel…

    Even working in a green environment was covered.

    Like I said, a green soup to nuts books. Lots of good, current information. Highly recommended.

    This review is from: Green Living For Dummies (For Dummies (Home & Garden)) (Paperback)

    This book gives so much information on tips for living greener. From saving on your utility bills, using the latest CFL bulbs, sustaining a small green garden, to shopping greener, just about anything you can think of this book gets into. The main savings, money wise and green wise are simple, for the most part no cost things all of us can do to make our planet cleaner, and greener. If you want to help your children live a greener lifestyle, it goes into a chapter about raising “greener” children, and teaching them how to conserve energy, help in the gardens, help with recycling, and much more. It also has a chapter about “greening your finances, from how to decide on a “greener checking account”, doing bill pay online, rather than have paper statements and bills, to conserving water, electricity, and gas. Most as I said are things you can start immediately, without any cost to do them. I highly recommend this book for an individual or family that want to learn ways they can conserve, recycle, reuse, saving our planet, reducing greenhouse gases, and save money doing it all.
