David Suzuki has spent over 40 years as a passionate advocate of sustainability and care for the planet. No-one is better qualified to produce a concise and informative guide to how to live sustainably.
Suzuki's Green Guide identifies the individual human actions that cause the most environmental damage, and offers strategies for individuals to reduce the size of their ecological footprint. It shows how we can be greener in the homes where we live, the way we travel, the food we eat, and the things we buy.
There are vital tips for readers to:
* create a healthy indoor environment
* decrease energy and water use
* choose eco-friendly transport
* make simple diet changes to eat fresher healthier food
The authors also point to ways in which individuals can join together and influence public opinion and government policies, with the aim of reaching a 'tipping point' in the movement for a sustainable future.
