Building a Green Community
"Green living" means changing the way we live and use resources so that the environment is able to produce indefinitely the things we need to live. Building a Green Community walks young readers through a model community identifying "green living" practices at work, at home, on our highways, and at the store. This fascinating book also includes case studies of "green" communities around the world.
