Editorial Reviews


From the Introduction:

"Fortunately, we live in a time when more and more efforts are being made to redeem the city with regard to its relationship with the natural world and a wider encompassing ecosystem. While the urban "sustainability movement" in this country might have its domestic roots on the West Coast, New Yorkers are waking up to this trend and an abundance of progressive politicians, entrepreneurs, activists, and citizens are starting to truly bring about some wonderful changes."

From the Back Cover

Many New Yorkers want to act more responsibly when it comes to good environmental health but simply don't know how. That's where The Big Green Apple comes in. With it, you'll discover in-depth recommendations and advice for hundreds of ways to adopt a lower-impact lifestyle in the city.
Practical and upbeat, The Big Green Apple clearly explains why environmental problems exist and how lifestyle choices make a difference. Inside you'll find information on:

Choosing a green power source
Locations of greenmarkets and community-supported agriculture programs
Simple ways to reduce energy consumption in your house or apartment - and save money
The "greening" of NYC restaurants and grocers, with helpful lists and locations
Streamlining the recycling process
Where to find eco-friendly dry cleaners, fashions, cosmetics, and household
And much more

Also included are a calendar of NYC's "greenest" events and an extensive directory of organizations and resources to help New Yorkers lighten their impact on the environment. Packed with facts and figures, this inspiring, highly accessible guide is a comprehensive grassroots resource for any New Yorker wishing to reconcile a green philosophy with an urban existence.
