About The Book

We all know about the Earth's environmental crisis, but there is someone who can truly make a difference: you. If you text your friends or chat with them online, download music to your iPod, or toss bottles and papers into recycling bins, you're already more eco-savvy than you think. It's just as easy to do even more to help save the earth, and Generation Green shows you how. This book:
  • Lays out the inside scoop on the biggest issues affecting our planet, such as global warming and overflowing landfills
  • Offers dozens of tips on how to shop, dress, eat, and travel the green way
  • Includes interviews with teens like you who are involved with fun, innovative green causes
  • Shows that being environmentally conscious can be a natural part of your life -- and your generation's contribution to turning things around.

It doesn't matter if you can't vote or drive. Your efforts -- big or small -- will contribute to saving the planet. It's time for all of us to take action. It's time to go green!
