Learn how to become eco warriors

A round-up of locally available books to inspire your family to go green

You already wash only full loads of
laundry, use energy-saving light bulbs and plant trees to reduce carbon dioxide
and increase oxygen. What else can your family do to go green? The answer is
read – educate yourselves about how much more you can do.

Local bookstores have a wealth of
green literature on how parents and children can minimise their carbon footprint,
reduce their water consumption and recycle.

The Book Nook and Books & Books
list top green books for all the family. Included in the round-up are a few children’s
