Everywhere I go I see that people and companies are trying to become more environmentally friendly. I became aware of the Green Movement back when I was in high school in the 1970s.

Each chapter is broken down with information, and includes interviews and a Question and Answer section with CEOs of many companies and non-profit organizations.
At the end of each chapter there is a reference section available including web links to products and service sites for you to explore for further information.
