Not sure where the budget part comes in?
on September 11, 2013
This isn't a book about saving the environment on a budget - it's 220 pages of advertisements for products to purchase. Each chapter ends with a list of companies and a blurb containing their web address, along with a brief list of what they offer and some pricing. In some cases the list of companies/products at the end of the chapter is longer than the chapter itself.
I am curious how much the companies listed paid the author to be included?
An entire chapter devoted to nontoxic cleaning supplies is a list of commercial products I can purchase. While the author raves about the company that pays him to be a spokesman, he did include a brief mention about mixing water and vinegar to make a cleaner. "Green Gear for the Small Set", a chapter on children, is filled with such useful information as where to buy a $350 crib mattresses or $26 onesies, and the oh so useful web site for a company that sells yoga gear for children, including a $28 PVC free healthy yoga mat and $15 DVD.
