Greening Your Home
Sustainable Options for Every System in your House

Author:  Clayton Bennet

ISBN:  9780071499095


Greening Your Home is an excellent guide to not only greening your actual house, but your lifestyle and overall "footprint".   

The book is divided into three parts-   Material Changes; Technology Changes; Lifestyle Changes Each section has a number of chapters covering a variety of related topics.


Material Changes discusses the physical aspects of your home and the materials used.  It includes chapters on environmental impact; health impact; availability; durability; sustainability; renew-ability; recyclability; simplicity; efficiency.

Technology Changes covers all those things that keep our homes running and our lives comfortable such as electrical; plumbing; heating; ventilating; air conditioning; insulating; cooking and washing.

Lifestyle Changes discusses ways in which our uses and interactions with our home can play a big part in reducing our footprint.  Included here are personal choices; energy sources; financial incentives; cooperative buying; agricultural independence; eliminating waste; reducing waste; washing up and getting outside.

This is quite a comprehensive detailed book, giving a lot of "whys" as well as "whats" and well worth a read.
