Everyone knows that the planet is in trouble, but is there a solution? This timely book identifies the most effective ways individuals can be more green in four key areas: home, travel, food, and consumerism. It also describes how citizens can ensure that governments take the actions necessary to make sustainable lifestyles the norm instead of the exception. Environmental lawyer David Boyd and celebrated ecologist David Suzuki provide vital tips for choosing a home, creating a healthy indoor environment, and decreasing energy and water use - and utility bills. They discuss what readers can do to drive and fly less, profile the most environmentally friendly transportation choices, and explain how to purchase carbon credits, among other suggestions. In addition, they offer simple changes individuals can make in their diet to eat fresher, tastier, healthier food. Included too is invaluable advice about how to buy fewer things and avoid toxic consumer products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and practical Suzuki is one great writer. This book reads so easily and has his awesome, hysterical, narrative. He's sure got a sense of humor with how he approaches things and he really lays this out for you. Here's what's happening, here's what we are doing about it, here's what we need to be doing about, here are simple amazing ways you can do it! He gives me hope for the future and I really enjoyed this book. I think if everyone read it they'd feel a lot easier about climate change because they'd really know how they could make a difference without having to change everything about their life.
