5.0 von 5 Sternen Great format, great info 4. Dezember 2009
Von CK - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I've read several books with similar content and didn't think this book would say something I haven't heard already. Wrong! Micaela Preston's book is great. I love the format of "buy it" and "make it". Someday I'll have time to make my own cleaners and beauty products, but until then I have better choices on what I can buy. Here's an example of something I didn't know: most plastic shower curtains are toxic, releasing fumes into your bathroom that you breathe in. You can purchase safe shower curtains at IKEA -- one of only a few retailers to stop selling the toxic version. Check out this book. You'll be glad you did.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Book for Going Green 8. September 2010
Von Janine Buell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I am a very green person to begin with so a lot of the chapters in this book were about subjects I was already familiar with. But I love it for the recipes and I think it would be a great book for anyone who's thinking about living a greener lifestyle. It's well-written and well-organized so you can green up your life one step at a time.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Finally! An easy-to-use guide on green living. 10. November 2009
Von M. Byrne - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I like how Preston's book gathers the essentials and presents them in an easy to use format. I've read and clipped out many newspaper and magazine articles on this subject...if I could only find them. This book allows you to jump right to a specific topic and in minutes you are prepared to make wise choices at the grocery or department store. Even better, you may discover that you don't need to leave the house at all - for example, there are instructions on how to make your own cleaning supplies from inexpensive ingredients you may already have in your cabinets. I also appreciate the web links that steer you toward more info on any topic. This keeps the book to a reasonable size, and will make it more likely to be referenced again and again. My friends and family will find this book under the X-mas tree later in December!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Realistic Green Living 18. März 2014
Von Rebecca of Amazon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
If you care about the environment you may find this 3700 location book very helpful. It is well organized with a working table of contents. This book has lots of good information for people who want to go beyond recycling and live a green lifestyle. Micaela Preston makes green living seem really fun and stress free. As you are reading you will probably realize how much you are already doing as well so this book will make you feel good.

Throughout the book there are little tidbits that are interesting. For example Micaela Preston explains how recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to run a computer for three hours. In her section on eating organic she also mentions how organic foods have more antioxidants. So there is a lot to inspire you. There are also some cautions like how hand sanitizer is dangerous for children. Also the recycling tips set me straight. I thought you could recycle egg cartons but I guess I was wrong.

Micaela Preston is not a vegetarian but she does encourage the reader to make earth-friendly recipes. The cheddar crackers look really good and I intend to make them soon.

If you have kids or you are a bit crafty you might enjoy making homemade play dough, your own napkins, cleaning supplies and pillowcases. Instructions and recipes are provided. There is also some information on how vinegar kills bacteria and mold.

One thing I will say is that you might want to skip the sponges for cleaning. They harbor a lot of bacteria. I use rags instead which I can wash properly.

This book has encouraged me to think more deeply about my use of plastic in the kitchen. I think I'm going to buy some glass storage containers instead of plastic. This is especially important if you microwave frozen leftovers.

After reading this book you will probably be more inclined to buy cage-free eggs, organic meats and Fair Trade coffee and chocolate.

So I think the information provided will make you a more informed consumer and you may think twice about what you buy.
