This week's copy is a new copy of "How to Reduce Your Carbon Footprint" (Duncan Baird) by Johanna Yarrow.
How to Reduce Your Carbon Footprint is the world citizen's guide to pushing back the advance of global warming. This colorful handbook offers 500 practical, easily achievable ideas that conserve energy, prevent pollution, and save money. Did you know that unplugging appliances and cell phone chargers when not in use can reduce electricity bills by 10 percent? Or that recycling just one glass bottle saves enough power to run a computer for 30 minutes? Whether the subject is jet travel, dishwashing, or any of the 50 topics in the book, surprising statistics and innovative graphics will inspire action and demonstrate that simple habits can lead to big results.
Enter to win this book by participating in this open thread by Monday, Feb. 23. All names attached to this thread will be entered into a random drawing. The winner will be announced next Wednesday. The winner of the book is invited to post a review on What Tami Said. Good luck!
