"If you've spent any time watching the TV news lately, chances are you've seen at least one piece about the environment -- and how our lifestyle has torn it apart over the last 100 years. It's hard to imagine describing modern life without using the words "green" and "environment." Most scientists consider our planet under threat, and as various media outlets continue to proclaim, it is up to us to do something about it. However, many of us don't know what to do. We feel hopelessly lost when it comes to strategies and methods that will enable us to look after our planet. In fact, many of us feel that our existence actively harms our world on a daily basis. Relax. You're not killing the planet. And the good news is that living sustainably, in a way that helps protect the environment, is not an unattainable dream. If you proceed slowly and carefully, you can make small changes here and there that will push you towards a life of true sustainability." --P. [4] of cover.
