David Suzuki's Green Guide

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Everyone knows that the planet is in trouble, but is there a solution? This timely book identifies the most effective ways individuals can be more green in four key areas: home, travel, food, and consumerism. It also describes how citizens can ensure that governments take the actions necessary to make sustainable lifestyles the norm instead of the exception. Environmental lawyer David Boyd and celebrated ecologist David Suzuki provide vital tips for choosing a home, creating a healthy indoor environment, and decreasing energy and water use — and utility bills. They discuss what readers can do to drive and fly less, profile the most environmentally friendly transportation choices, and explain how to purchase carbon credits, among other suggestions. In addition, they offer simple changes individuals can make in their diet to eat fresher, tastier, healthier food. Included too is invaluable advice about how to buy fewer things and avoid toxic consumer products.

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 01, 2008 – Suzuki is a Canadian scientist and environmentalist, known best for his CBC television science show The Nature of Things. With Boyd, a Canadian environmental lawyer and writer, he provides concise but thorough advice, in clear and readable text, for those who want to live greener but are overwhelmed by confusing media reports. Broken down into sections on home, food, travel, waste management and green citizenship, Suzuki and Boyd cover all the major and most of the minor issues, showing how everyday steps (like label-reading, on which they provide a tutorial) can reduce one's carbon footprint. Focusing on well-being and the big picture, Suzuki turns around the conventional wisdom that living green means sacrificing comfort and convenience; providing information that the green life is frequently healthier and happier, he argues that unsustainable practices in housing, transportation and food production present a greater threat to day-to-day comfort and convenience, as well as to survival. Summarized in a simple-if-broad Twelve Guiding Principles of Sustainable Consumption, Suzuki's approach is easy and joyful, ideal for the person who thinks going green is impossible or who is at a loss on how to begin.

Customer Reviews

Condescending hypocrite.

Suzuki's motto is do as I say, not as I do. Don't give him any more money.
