This book presents very clear background information and detailed action steps for improving campus environmental stewardship. It is an important contribution to the field because of its 'how-to,' action-oriented approach and because of the braod spectrum of issues covered. There are very few publications available that provide thorough implementation steps for greening college campuses. It's a great compliment to the existing body of work and is useful for a broad range of campus stakeholders, including faculty, students, and administration and staff.(April Smith, President, ReThink, Inc. and author of Campus Ecology: A guide to Assessing Environmental Quality and Creating Strategies for Change)
