true green

warming, greenhouse gases, climate change…often the magnitude of the
environmental challenges we face can leave us feeling powerless – but
we’re not. In True Green: 100 Everyday Ways You can Contribute to a Healthier Planet, Kim
McKay and Jenny Bonnin, part of the Clean Up Australia and
Clean Up the World team, suggest 100 small ways in which you
can make a big difference, at home, in the garden, at work, while
travelling or in your community.

Practical, positive and easy-to-use, this essential reference shows
how making simple changes in your everyday life can contribute to a
healthier planet. Don’t just be true blue – be true green.
