"Kathy Stein's ideas and suggestions are not just good for the environment, they're great for your wallet, too. That's a win-win combination anybody can live with. By highlighting the need to re-use, Ms. Stein is one of the first authors to confront the real environmental issue facing our society -- the need to consume less, not just recycle more". (Bob Lilienfeld, Editor, The Use Less Stuff Report)
