Many environmentalists have reservations about the role the individual can play in saving the earth. Christenson agrees that corporate pollution and g overnment policies are mostly to blame, but she maintains that personal cha nge is an essential part of changing public attitudes, and it is public att itudes that will force the necessary changes in industry and technology. Ho me Ecology is not a green consumer guide. It is about living better, not bu ying better—about beginning the process of long-term change to a sustainabl e way of life. It's about choices. Although every choice you make may not c hange the world, at the very least, it changes you. The book is organized i nto 15 sections: time, food, shopping, recycling, energy, transportation, a ir, water, health the nontoxic home, radiation, light, gardening, pets, and children. It is a complete overview to improving your way of life, step by step.
