Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In celebration of Earth Day's 25th anniversary comes this revised edition of MacEachern's popular environmental how-to.
Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From Library Journal

The Sierra Club's Michael McCloskey, in the introduction to this book, says that MacEachern "pulls the whole picture together as no one has ever done." This is only partially true. She does cover a wide range of environmentally protective actions in home, garden, garage, supermarket, school, office, community, apartment, and on vacation, but some of her checklists' effectiveness are not clear. MacEachern gives insufficient detail on several points (e.g., energy-saving tree planting around houses); accepts some solutions with little exploration (e.g., banning foam packaging); and ignores how solutions conflict or overlap. Buy this book now, but hope for better. See also John Elkington & others' The Green Consumer , reviewed in this issue, above.--Ed.
