Green Guide for Home and Household The Handbook for Creating a Planet-friendly Home by Jen Marsden

Author Jen Marsden takes the reader through a step-by-step approach to creating a healthy, natural and eco-friendly living space, with a tour around the home, leaving no wall, appliance or floor untouched. With a light-hearted, practical and straightforward approach she asks and answers key questions such as: What are the greenest building materials? Is it necessary to install a wind turbine or solar panel to be energy efficient? What are the really eco-friendly ways to decorate? Where do you find the most natural furnishings? What are the best natural cleaning products - and what really works? Jargon is explained and the book abounds with green tips and insight. Builders, architects, designers and consultants offer their expert advice in the form of case studies. The book also includes a directory of more than 1,500 green and sustainable products, suppliers and organizations.
