2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Norma Lehmeierhartie on 15 April 2008
Format: Paperback
Lori Bongiorno, a journalist, became interested in the environment and the safety of products when her husband got melanoma and died from the cancer. She writes that she learned from her husband's experience that preventing disease is preferable to trying to cure a disease.

With preventing disease on her mind, she wrote Green Greener Greenest, providing the reader with a phletora of tools to stay healthy.

Unlike a number of recently published green books, Green Greener Greenest is well researched and offers much information for those seeking a green lifestyle.

Bongiorno offers environmentally sound choices in food, beverages, personal care products, green choices for babies and children, home building and improvement, apparel and furnishings, cleaning, pest control and transportation. Within each chapter, I really like how she "decodes labels"; the often confusing, sometimes misleading labels that come with many products.

Like a good journalist, she did her homework, providing much research and information to help the reader understand the problems in environmentally unsafe products and to let them decide for themselves what level of green they wish to live by.

I felt that the chapters on home building and improvements and furnishings could have had more information, but it did provide a good starting point. For example, Bongiorno does not discuss the green choices in flooring other than marginally acceptable greener carpeting.

I highly recommend this book.

Green et al. 13 April 2008
By Dr. Joseph S. Maresca - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The author provides some excellent ideas aimed at preserving
the environment. Some of these are as follows:

o formaldehyde free fiberglass
o washable area rugs
o replaceable carpet tiles to reduce waste in replacement
o dehumidifiers to reduce molds
o low-flow showerheads
o waterbourne polyurethane floor finishes

The authors have done a considerable amount of research
in presenting readers with practical and affordable
earth-friendly products and processes for business and
personal use. The book would be helpful for a wide
group of consumers and users in every industry.

Real Ways to Make a Real Difference 10 April 2008
By Virginia Terry-jacobus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Just in time for Earth Day! My family and I made some Earth Day 2008 resolutions, and after discovering this book, we now know how to make good on them. This is cover-to-cover full with great, practical information and green choices. It covers a wide spectrum of topics and issues, making it the kind of reference book we'll be able to go back to for years.

Highly recommended!

Not all of her opinions are balanced 6 May 2008
By Bookworm426 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
While I found this book to be interesting, and some areas quite enlightening, other areas were very disappointing.

Do a little research before you take her advice on food. Many of her 'resources' are known activist groups with their own agendas. For instance, while she does her best to discourage anyone from choosing irradiated foods siting information from The Center for Food Safety, she neglects to mention that the process has been approved in over 40 countries, has been used on food for over 50 years, and has the potential to virtually eliminate many life-threatening outbreaks of foodborne illnesses. She also makes a cancer link to milk from cows that have received rbst - that link has not been proven.

So don't avoid the book, just read certain portions with some skepticism and do more research on your own. You are your own best advocate.

Bongiorno has done an exhaustive job researching a guide that will make our homes and lives allot greener.

This is the perfect gift for all our friends struggling with their green choices.
