Editorial Reviews

Review

Green, Greener, Greenest is an indispensable resource for anyone trying to reduce their environmental impact: comprehensive and convincing but also sane and realistic.”
—Michael Pollan, bestselling author of The Omnivore’s Dilemma and In Defense of Food

“Lori Bongiorno shows how we can reconnect ourselves with the ecologic cycle with Green Greener Greenest by highlighting how what we eat, buy, wear, build, and clean has a direct link to the health of the environment and the health of ourselves and our families. For anyone who has struggled to figure what do to make a difference, this book offers a clear and concise map to a more connected future.”
—Walker Wells, AICP LEED AP, Sustainable Cities Program Director, Global Green USA

“Lori Bongiorno’s book synthesizes helpful information about how consumers can green their lifestyles through a range of simple choices, from energy and water conservation to grocery shopping, and breaks it down in an easy-to-understand way. Gone are the days when people can claim they just don’t know what they can do to help protect our planet. As this book explains, making a difference is much easier than consumers might think.”
—Tensie Whelan, Executive Director, the Rainforest Alliance

"In one portable volume, Green, Greener, Greenest covers all the bases for those seeking a greener lifestyle. From food, to clothing, to energy use and transportation, Lori Bongiorno's book is an invaluable reference for living in today's world."
—Ronnie Cummins, National Director, Organic Consumers Association

"Lori Bongiorno's handbook to what's good, better and best for the environment provides consumers welcome, clear and highly readable advice on how to be as eco-smart as you want to be.”
Dan Becker, Former Director, Sierra Club Global Warming Program

“Becoming green or sustainable takes time and some effort, but Green, Greener, Greenest makes the process much easier. From food and beverages to personal care products and pest control, Lori Bongiorno gives us practical suggestions to minimize our exposure to potentially harmful substances and to lessen our impact on the environment.”

—Diane Hatz, Founder/Director, Sustainable Table

“‘Going green’ has never been easier now that Lori Bongiorno has helped us sort out the real information from the hype. There is something here for everyone, from those with a casual interest to those who would like to green every aspect of their life.”
—Patti Wood, Executive Director, Grassroots Environmental Education

“This is a useful and up-to-date compendium of the best resources for the eco- conscious. It will save you time in your quest for personal responsibility--time that can be spent in the greenest of all ways, by joining the political battle for sweeping, society-wide change.”
—Bill McKibben author of Fight Global Warming Now and founder of Step It Up

Green, Greener, Greenest is an excellent compilation of good information, briefly and accessibly presented, and a very useful handbook for green-minded people who mean business.”
—Peter Matthiessen, author of Shadow Country

“Hopeful, helpful, and packed with well researched tips, Green, Greener, Greenest is a great family guide to living the genuinely good life. Whether you are feeding your kids, gardening, choosing cars, clothing or cleaning products, you'll find the information you need to make wise and livable choices.”
—Ann Lovejoy, author and sustainability educator

“From diamonds to diapers and cars to gardens, Lori Bongiorno provides an easy to read primer for making small changes that can make big differences in the health and lives of millions. A book like this could initiate a shift toward improved product safety long before governments step in and do their job.”
—Theo Colborn, PhD, President, The Endocrine Disruption Exchange (TEDX); Professor, University of Florida --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Just in time for Earth Day! My family and I made some Earth Day 2008 resolutions, and after discovering this book, we now know how to make good on them. This is cover-to-cover full with great, practical information and green choices. It covers a wide spectrum of topics and issues, making it the kind of reference book we'll be able to go back to for years.

Highly recommended!

I bought this book as part of a "green bridal shower gift". It is factual, easy to read and full of great info for a "pale greeny" looking to darken up the skin. Plan to make it a standard gift!

A very fine resource for going GREEN. I've incorporated many of the practical energy efficient ideas into our city lifestyle hoping our family can (in our own little way) help the planet. I've bought several copies for friends who are choosing to do the same. Global warming is here folks.

I have been reading in green living in the net for the past 6 yeas & this book in a easy to read package has distilled all the knowledge in one single place. This was just amazing. The research is expansive & meticulous & the book is consummate as it covers the entire gamut of our lives. Can't recommend it more.
