  Sure, we all know the planet is in trouble. We hear talk all the time about climate change, air pollution from cars, oil spills into oceans, trash overflowing into waterways, and toxic chemicals leaking into our groundwater. Sigh. But the good news is there’s a lot we can do to start cleaning up the Earth. And it starts with you!

This book explores tons of small (and big) things that teens can do to make a positive difference in the environment such as:

• go on a green date with a new crush

• eat less meat

• learn to shop vintage

• create an environmental task force at school

• go on an eco-adventure

• and more!
