Here is the essential book for those who do not have the space or time to grow their own food and cannot forgo the use of their cars, but who are nonetheless concerned about their health, global warming, clean water, and disappearing resources.
Refreshingly free of high-minded, self-righteous hysterics, this book encourages people to do what is within reach. Unlike related books that assume a general altruism on the part of the reader, the information here outlines how and why living a more environmentally conscious life benefits one's health, wealth, and immediate community. In addition to self-evident steps like recycling and reusing, the book discusses many other, less obvious measures.
Packed with facts, anecdotes, humor, and a heavy dose of sanity, The Newman's Own Organic Guide to a Good life is organized around the way people actually live, allowing readers to easily identify what areas of change are viable for them. Shopping suggestions for everything from household items to pet food help the reader vote with their dollars while feeling good about their purchases.
The book also contains projects for children and an extensive resource directory of publications, retailers, groups and associations, along with other information.
