4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Norma Lehmeierhartie on 15 April 2008
Format: Paperback
This book covers a vast amount of information in the typical Dummy fashion. If you know nothing about living a green lifestyle, Green Living for Dummies will teach you the basics and lots more. Because of the breadth of this book, virtually everyone will learn from it.

The book begins like most green living books do, with an overview of the importance of being green for our deeply troubled Earth.

However, unlike most eco-friendly books I've read, this one covers the gamut:

Green at Home: includes a section on detecting and banishing health hazards like asbestos and lead.Basics on green remodeling and building and on green cleaning.

Chapter on garbage. This was great, as part of the problem is the proper disposal of unwanted stuff. Includes how and what to recycle, including what to do with the problematic computers and cell phones.

Chapter on growing your own food.

The chapter on how to purchase the best green and ethical food was excellent.

Subsequent chapters included green clothing, ethical investments, donations and banking.

Transportation, green travel...

Even working in a green environment was covered.

Like I said, a green soup to nuts books. Lots of good, current information. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Some 'For dummies' books can be very hit and miss, but this one is an excellent introduction to Green Living and ecology in everyday life. It looks at a whole host of topics such as, your place in the environment and getting started, how to make changes around the home, how to be a green consumer, going green at school and at work and green travel. It looks at all the facets of these various topics (and more) in great depth and in the 'dummies' usual format. Some idea are common sense and others need a change in lifestyle and general habits, but they are all clear and explained thoroughly. Not all of these ideas will be applicable to you, or will be easy to implement, but as a general guide to this very current topic, you can do a lot worse. This is a good overview, with some good ideas and written in a very accessible way. Worth a look.

I purchased loads of these books as gifts to raise awareness of sustainable development projects we were implementing across the business and to get buy-in from the people that were environmental ignorant and wasteful of resources.

A good basic book on why you need to be more respectful of limited resources and how to avoid pollution making health hazards and respecting the environment.

Terrible title but a really good informative book. I'm looking to live a more eco life and this book answers all my eco questions. It is interesting and informative and I shall continue to dip into it in the future.

Get into Your Own Green Living Plans today 17 Jun. 2009
By Pamela Steele - Published on Amazon.com

This book gives so much information on tips for living greener. From saving on your utility bills, using the latest CFL bulbs, sustaining a small green garden, to shopping greener, just about anything you can think of this book gets into. The main savings, money wise and green wise are simple, for the most part no cost things all of us can do to make our planet cleaner, and greener. If you want to help your children live a greener lifestyle, it goes into a chapter about raising "greener" children, and teaching them how to conserve energy, help in the gardens, help with recycling, and much more. It also has a chapter about "greening your finances, from how to decide on a "greener checking account", doing bill pay online, rather than have paper statements and bills, to conserving water, electricity, and gas. Most as I said are things you can start immediately, without any cost to do them. I highly recommend this book for an individual or family that want to learn ways they can conserve, recycle, reuse, saving our planet, reducing greenhouse gases, and save money doing it all.
