Synopsis

47 Things You Can Do for the Environment by Lexi Petronis, Karen Macklin, Jill Buck

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.

Reviews

Boosterish advice for teens and preteens looking for ways to board the eco-wagon and bring along some friends. Urging readers to greenify house, school, car, community and especially themselves, as well as spread the word to peers, 'rents and politicians, Petronis tallies many more than 47 general ways....The book's thoroughness is to be praised...
