As others have noted, this book is a beginner's book on lightening one's environmental footprint. It has some good advice for anyone starting to think critically of the ecological impact of their lifestyle. There are resources in the back for further reading on the topics mentioned in the book. That's a plus.

The incessant statements of statistics at each entry were numbing after a short time, and the celebrity testimonies were entirely unnecessary, possibly even harmful to the book's message. Country singers and film stars have no place to tell the average person about greening their lifestyle. It doesn't take a lot of thought to see the hypocrisy in such essays. Driving a Prius makes you green? Really? How much does it offset your active promotion of consumerist lifestyles? Give me a break. ( )

Lots of good ideas. I'll probably buy one for several of my family members. You have to already want to be environmentally friendly to read this book. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0307381358, Paperback)

Ellen DeGeneres, Robert Redford, Will Ferrell, Jennifer Aniston, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Martha Stewart, Tyra Banks, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Tiki Barber, Owen Wilson, and Justin Timberlake tell you how they make a difference to the environment.

Inside The Green Book, find out how you can too:

- Don’t ask for ATM receipts. If everyone in the United States refused their receipts, it would save a roll of paper more than two billion feet long, or enough to circle the equator fifteen times!

- Turn off the tap while you brush your teeth. You’ll conserve up to five gallons of water per day. Throughout the entire United States, the daily savings could add up to more water than is consumed every day in all of New York City.

- Get a voice-mail service for your home phone. If all answering machines in U.S. homes were replaced by voice-mail services, the annual energy savings would total nearly two billion kilowatt hours. The resulting reduction in air pollution would be equivalent to removing 250,000 cars from the road for a year!

With wit and authority, authors Elizabeth Rogers and Thomas Kostigen provide hundreds of solutions for all areas of your life, pinpointing the smallest changes that have the biggest impact on the health of our precious planet.
