With every new day's headlines the world is shifting into a new reality. Freakish weather patterns, widespread smog alerts, and unsafe water advisories are problems that we all need to tackle. But we still have to drive cars, pack school lunches, do laundry, unclog toilets, and throw dinner parties. So how do we do the things we do without making a mess of our world? Green for Life is a practical guide to living the life you want, but with the reduced impact the planet needs. Well known for her involvement in environmental issues, Gillian Deacon takes you through the stuff of everyday life and explains how to do it with minimal environmental impact. Green for Life is a must-have guide for people who know they have to do something, but don't know where to start.
