The Consumer's Guide to Effective Environmental Choices PDF

by Michael Brower This book is a good read for anyone worried about the environment, but who isn't quite ready to head out to the local hippie commune.This book doesn't sweat big policy issues, and is several years old, but still provides a good primer on what exactly our how our consumer society is hurting the environment and what we can do in our day-to-day lives to minimize the damage.The scientific methodology is refreshing.

Aside from offering some relief from non-dilemmas such as "paper or plastic", the book can basically be summarized with the following:

-Don't drive
-Suburban sprawl is bad
-Buy a new refrigerator if yours is over 10-15 years old
-Meat is worse for the environment than dairy or grains
-Trash and consumer disposable waste is a relatively minor problem
