Going Green has never been so easy! The array of so-called green products on the market is dizzying and often misleading. Consumers need one reference book that clearly lays out what is the better choice-between brands, benefits, and costs. Just Green It! compares brand-name products, making it easy for consumers to make environmentally friendly choices on everything from light bulbs to mattresses to baby food. It tells you which products are the best for the planet and also healthy for you, your kids, your home, and your budget. For the average consumer, this means clarity of green definitions and product comparisons that are no longer a luxury, but a necessity. Authors Ron and Lisa Beres debunk the greenwashing that is so prevalent in modern marketing and teach readers how to know the difference between such confusing terms as natural, organic, chemical free, and nontoxic. Full of surprising facts and lots of ways to save money and help the environment, this is an essential book for the modern age.
