On Saturday afternoon I sat outside on our back patio and read this book (really, it was way too hot to work in the garden). It really was too good to put down. And here's the best bit...it's Canadian, eh! I love finding books like this written by a Canadian and filled with Canadian sources.
If you are at all interested in making more environmentally friendly choices then this is the book for you. The author writes about food, home improvement, health products, clothing, transportation, and much more.
Did you know that "if each household in Canada switched just one roll of virgin bleached stuff (toilet paper) with one roll of the recycled kind, we'd save almost 48,000 trees and prevent 4500 kilograms of the air and water pollution that comes from making it"? That is the difference that one roll each of toilet paper could make. I think that is do-able for anyone. Heck, I think we could all even do more than one roll, when it means saving that many trees, don't you? Can you imagine the changes we could make if we all committed to a few bigger changes?
