Tackles Your Toughest Green Living Questions

Mr. Green

When is the right time to replace an old refrigerator?
Is it okay to knit a sweater with acrylic yarn?
Is it more environmentally correct to buy beer in bottles or cans?

For the last several years, Bob Schildgen's popular "Hey Mr. Green" column has tackled real-world questions from real people.
His columns have been collected into a book of the same title. Readers trust his answers, which are backed by Sierra Club's research, and they also enjoy his realism and irreverent humor. Hey Mr. Green is an indispensable, opinionated, and authoritative guide to minding one's environmental footprint.
