Upon further inspection, I decided it was definately worth a buy and read. It is printed on recycled paper, and offers a section with specific and effective tips to follow on your path to a green life. Each tip has boxes for you to check off for ones you want to target, are currently working on, or have achieved. These are great, and are targeted at those of us who are busy and need some hand holding. From saving paper, to saving energy and everything in between, these practical tips will empower the average person to feel like they are making progress.
So often our desires to "go green" leave many of us feeling overwhelmed and uninspired. When we start to hear of all the problems that the green movement wants to tackle, it seems like a hurdle that is impossible to jump. Trask takes these worries to task, and devotes an entire chapter to green myths. Other chapters include Buying Green, Getting Involved and Resources. This book deserves a place on my bookshelf, as I continue to work through the tips, step by step. To quote the book quoting Plato: "Never discourage anyone who continually makes progress, no matter how slow."
