"Boosterish advice for teens and preteens looking for ways to board the eco-wagon and bring along some friends. Urging readers to "greenify" house, school, car, community and especially themselves, as well as spread the word to peers, ’rents and politicians, Petronis tallies many more than 47 general ways….The book’s thoroughness is to be praised…" - Kirkus Reviews
"Petronis convincingly encourages young people that they can not only positively affect the environment by their own actions, but that they can also influence adults at home, at school, and in their communities to make environmentally sound decisions….This is a common-sense, positive approach to teaching young people about caring for the environment. Recommended." - Library Media Connection
