Chapters include Clothing, Outdoor Gear, Travel, Cars, Real Estate, Architecture and Construction (lists of architects, rugs, decks, types of paint, insulation), Energy Alternatives (green tags, solar), Furniture, Kitchen, Bedroom, Housecleaning, Gardening, Animals, Babies, Electronics, Business and Office, Investing, Media, and Death and Dying.
I'm considering whether to buy or build a new home, and resources for 'green' remodeling and 'green' building, as well as 'green' pre-fab are here. Chapters are short, not usually more than 7 or 8 pages, and begin with narrative. At the end of each piece of commentary are the resources he mentions, complete with a reminder of the company or service provider, as well as all pertinent contact information. There are chapters that address almost every facet of our lives, from carpeting and paint, to bedding and toilets.
Dorfman make being lazy, "heavenly". He opens the door for us so that going green isn't as intimidating as it may seem. We aren't lost by crazy industry-specific lingo. He explains terms well in simple definitions and allows us to see that even in green circles, there isn't a 'secret handshake' sort of clique.
This book is essential for people who are interested in making a difference, but just aren't sure where to begin.
