“Hey Mr. Green” Book Released

When is the right time to replace an old refrigerator? Is it more environmentally correct to buy your beer in bottles or cans? Is there any oil company that's really "greener" than the others? And how much paper do you actually need to recycle in order to save a whole tree?

For several years, Bob Schildgen (aka "Mr. Green") has been answering real-world questions like these in his Sierra magazine column. Now the Sierra Club has distilled the best of "Mr. Green" into an enormously useful and entertaining book, "Hey Mr. Green: Sierra Magazine's Answer Guy Tackles Your Toughest Green Living Questions."

The book is organized in helpful sections- At Home offers tips on staying cool, cleaning up, and other domestic details; Food for Thought focuses on how to eat and drink better while spending less; Out and About covers getting around, fueling up, and enjoying the great outdoors; The Three Rs shows you how (and why) to reduce, reuse, and recycle almost everything; and The Big Picture considers how the environment, politics, religion, and other issues intersect -- often at the dinner table.

If you're looking for an Earth Day gift for a green friend -- or for someone who you wish you could convince to go green -- check out our special offer where you can order the book for the Sierra Club Supporter discount price of only $11.25.
