Overview

Even though you are just one person who may have never done anything extraordinary before, you can change the world.

Did you know:

• Every day the Earth receives enough solar energy to heat every home in the world for one year—free.
• It takes twenty trees to keep one baby in disposable diapers for two years.
• Of the billion pounds of pesticides used each year in the U.S., less than one percent reaches a pest.
• The average American throws out their own weight in packaging every month.
• If your office recycled one ton of the paper it uses, you'd be saving seventeen trees and keeping sixty pounds of air pollution out of the sky.

There are hundreds of tips in this book, but don't let the numbers throw you. Even if you follow just one or two of the suggestions provided, tangible progress will be made towards restoring vitality to the Earth.
