From the Back Cover
Look for clothing made from organic cotton, hemp, or bamboo. Choose the train over the plane. Swear off toxic commercial cleaners and embrace baking soda. Find ways to eat and buy local. (And “eating green” isn’t just for humans—look for hormone-free pet food, or consider cooking it yourself!)
Plus a Green Glossary and profiles of important environmentalists.

Okay, I admit a moment of irony when purchasing this calendar. I wondered, "Will the first green tip be 'Don't buy Page-a-Day calendars'?" But it's kind of a tradition where I work to buy a Page-a-Day calendar (you've got to have something to look forward to every morning, I guess), and I've memorized all the Dilberts ever published, so this seemed the next best choice.
Though the new year hasn't started yet, I've been cheating and thumbing ahead in my calendar. There are a lot of good tips here, things that I hadn't even thought of myself, even though I've been trying to 'live green' for over a year now, and have several books on the topic. Everything here seems pretty practical, too - I haven't run across anything like 'Give up toilet paper' or something similarly drastic.
Another thing nice about this calendar is that it's an easy way to introduce green concepts to non-green people - I'm one of the few people in the office who recycles regularly, but these tips drive home just how much can be done if everyone chips in a tiny bit. And since the calendar sits out on my desk, several people have noted it in passing and might take that little bit of advice to heart. Oh, and I also recycle the calendar pages, so there's also that.

I would definitely recommend this calendar.
