Do something every day. Most of us want to do the right thing for the environment, but making the commitment to change our fast-paced, convenience-oriented lifestyles can be more than a little daunting. What's the answer? Take that giant commitment and cut it up into 365 little commitments that get met one day at a time. The Green Year does just that. More than a calendar, it offers simple, practical, affordable, and engaging activities that make going green a blessing rather than a burden. In addition to these easy green suggestions, readers will find in The Green Year:
?The 'why?' behind each activity
? What makes it good for the environment and the reader?
?A quick 'how-to' for any activity that requires it
?Room for readers to write in their own creative alternatives
