Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

"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.

Includes index.
