I really enjoyed reading about companies that are making a difference for our environment. Not all companies are out for the money. This books shows that being environmentally responsible can still make money and make the world a better place for our children.
A refreshingly positive outlook in an era of bad news reports and oil spills galore. A look into the lives of people who want to change the world for the better, but nothing terribly exciting.

Don't despair, we'll solve the environmental problem. Or will we? Suzuki & D. are trying to be upbeat here. Profiles of hopeful projects and people.
