Taylor, Nancy H. Go Green: How to Build an Earth-Friendly Community.
6 words: Practical hints, resources for sustainable future.
As our energy crisis comes to a head, many of us are becoming more conscious of our fragile environment and our place within it. This short little book (on recycled paper) offers many ways for us to begin some lifestyle changes at both the personal and the community levels that will benefit our pocketbooks and our environment. She suggests that we can find a middle way: "between denial and deprivation," in which we practice conservation, recycling, and innovative thinking.
In the final chapter, Taylor says, "In the Chinese book of changes called the I Ching, the symbol for crisis is related to the symbol of opportunity." Now is the time for us to seize the opportunity to take a long-range approach to our planet's future.
Since this is a subject that interests me, I found this little book useful and full of great resource material.
