The Green Book: The Everyday Guide to Saving the Planet One Simple Step at a Time by Elizabeth Rogers and Thomas M. Kostigen (333.72 ROG)

Our energy and resources footprint on this earth is huge, but there are many things we can do to reduce, reuse, and recycle, according to the authors of The Green Book: The Everyday Guide to Saving the Planet One Simple Step at a Time.

-Use wooden baseball bats, which are safer and made from from a renewable resource. Aluminum mining and manufacturing is terribly energy-wasteful and environmentally destructive.
-Use a commercial car wash instead of washing your car at home to save lots of water.
-The manufacture of laptop or notebook computers uses fewer materials and less energy than desktop computers. Using these smaller computers is also more energy efficient.

The lists of earth-friendly ideas goes on and on. Most are actually very easy if you can just remember to do them, such as share a bigger bag of popcorn at the movies instead of buying two bags. A very helpful book.
