Paper or plastic? Should we fly or drive? Is it better to buy an old house or build a new one? These days consumers face many questions which come laden with environmental consequences we never even thought about just ten years ago. Sorting through all the choices and sifting out the best answers is the work of authors Michael Brower and Warren Leon of the Union of Concerned Scientists.
In their fascinating book, The Consumer’s Guide to Effective Environmental Choices, you’ll learn the four most significant consumer-related environmental problems and the seven rules for responsible consumption, along with other useful information. Available at your local bookstore or online here.
