This edition is now outdated to the point where it is almost quaint but that shouldn't take away from the profound impact it had it the 1990s. Recycling was not yet popular, water conservation was unheard of and laundry soap still contained phosphates. This little guide provided small steps consumers could make in their daily habits that actually moved the needle in helping the environment. Yes, of course, there's much to be done. But it would have been a lot worse today without the grassroots movements ordinary people used to change purchasing habits, make companies produce cleaner products and force municipalities to conserve resources.
It's nice to be reminded of the power we citizens can wield, plus the book includes some tips on larger-scale projects that are still needed today. It's worth keeping around. ( )

Interesting, easy to read and implement ideas to save the planet.. ( )

"It's a practical, entertaining, and informative guide to the things YOU can do to help protect the Earth." From the back cover. Perhaps somewhat outdated, but non-the-less still useful suggestions to consider and possibly act upon. ( )

This book is full of easy, practical suggestions to implement everyday... but is overwhelmingly centered around the notion that individual action will change systemic societal issues, and doesn't seem to acknowledge that these issues are rooted in industrial technology and a civilization that's based on persistent disrespect of the Earth. However, when viewed as simply small steps to be taking while working towards a larger liberation, the tips are great and easy to apply. ( )

I read this years ago, when it was published. Lots of good ideas here for helping the planet. ( )
