Confusing

It is very informative and shocking and sometimes not easy to read but that is the nature of the subject matter and if shock is what will make people change then...” --eris

Green Guide Families: The Complete Reference for Eco-Friendly Parents

“When I got this book from the publishers - National Geographic - to review I was pretty excited. Almost no one writes books about green families in particular. Most have a slant for individuals or babies or climate change; but families, not so much. There are a ton of pros to this book and honestly, if you have a family, I'd say this is one of the best book buys on the market that I've...” --JenniferChait
