Go Green: 06/08/08
Go Green: How to Build a Earth-Friendly Community by Nancy H. Taylor is a slim volume (164 pages when counting the resources and index) that introduces key concepts for environmentally friendly living.
The book starts with simple changes that can be done at home or in the office to save energy and resources. From there it builds outwards, first with ways to remodel existing structures, then to building green from scratch, green transportation, sustainable local food sources, water conservation and recycling, renewable energy, a world view and finally how all these things can be brought together to realize a fully green community. The book concludes with a lengthy set of resources (many of them online) for readers to further their progress in becoming part of the solution.
The first couple of chapters I wish were longer as we have already implemented everything in chapter one. I was hoping to learn something new that my family and I could add to our conservation tricks.
My last little nitpick is the choice of ink color: it's turquoise blue. It doesn't show up well under my compact florescent lights. It made for an eye straining read at night. I hope later editions will go back to black ink.
