The Organic Suburbanite: An Environmentally Friendly Way to Live the American Dream
In this one-of-a-kind guide, award-winning garden writer Warren Schultz, author of A Man's Turf, demystifies the world of organics with his trademark wit and extensive horticultural knowledge. First he explains the environmental and personal pitfalls of traditional, toxic household practices, then provides safe, natural, and easy alternatives. He tackles the tough issues facing today's suburbanites, such as cutting down energy use in the kitchen, what to use to unclog the bathroom sink, which cars create the least pollution, and whether to fertilize the lawn.
In a beautiful, four-color design, The Organic Suburbanite addresses every inch of the home environment, from garden and garage to laundry and bath. The 80 vintage photographs provide a tongue-in-cheek look at life in the 'burbs and add a lighthearted touch to serious subject matter. Combining wit and practicality, The Organic Suburbanite is sure to become the essential organic handbook for suburban "homesteaders" across the country.
