Five years after the initial publication of Worldchanging, the landscape of environmentalism and sustainability has changed dramatically, and now the average reader is inundated with green lifestyle advice. Based on his website worldchanging.com—the global nonprofit media collaborative dedicated to exploring tools, models, and ideas for building a better future—this second edition of Alex Steffen's densely packed yet highly browsable illustrated digest is extensively revised to include the latest trends, technologies, and solutions in sustainable living. More than 160 new entries include new information on the locavore movement, carbon-neutral homes, novel transportation solutions, the growing trend of ecotourism, and the concept of food justice.
"If you haven't yet had an opportunity to take a look at this ambitious and impressively comprehensive how-to guide on sustainable living, now is an excellent time.... It doesn't matter what catches your eye in Worldchanging—whether it's finding an online magazine that will give you ideas on how to re-use your old doorknobs, or joining an alliance of 'bridge bloggers'—you can find the resources to get you started, and the inspiration to make your Earth Day resolutions bigger, better, and greener."—NationalGeographic.com
