about this book

Finally an inspirational, hopeful book which empowers us to make the choices we need to make...not out of fear but out of love for ourselves, our Earth, and each other.

“The Earth is what we all have in common. It is what we are made of and what we live from, and we cannot damage it without damaging those with whom we share it.”
–Wendell Berry

You Can Save the Earth: 7 Reasons Why & 7 Simple Ways
is the perfect book to pick up for your friends, your office, your home, and yourself. While many books on sustainability and climate change focus only on disasters and what has gone wrong–what we have lost–this one takes a new tack. You Can Save the Earth focuses on real-life, simple solutions to many of our global problems, and emphasizes steps that can be taken on an individual basis or on a local level to promote environmental awareness and conservation.
Because it promotes reflection rather than guilt, You Can Save the Earth offers a new approach to discussing the environment, climate change, and how man influences his surroundings. After examining the impact that man has on his environment, You Can Save the Earth provides seven simple things you can do or a “roadmap” for readers to follow in their daily lives, from the office, to the home, the store, and everywhere in between. By creating good habits and incorporating them into our lifestyles, man can live in closer harmony with his environment.
