The Complete Idiot's Guide has Gone Green!
The Complete Idiot's Guide has gone green with a whole set of books on eco-friendly living. Here are few excerpts from each book to give you a flavor of the information they contain:
- The Complete Idiot's Guide to Organic Living:
Conventionally grown coffee spends its life in the sun and is doused with a bunch of pesticides. However, processing beans does away with most of the residues. But the people who grown the beans have to deal with those pesticides on a daily basis. It you buy organic coffee, you can help lessen their body burden-and perhaps spare your own.
- The Complete Idiot's Guide to Vegetable Gardening:
As you can see, many insects are beneficial to your garden, and unless you have studied them, you might have difficulty telling a good bug from a bad one. That's why it's just not a good idea to use insecticides and pesticides indiscriminately. If you just go out and spray like crazy, you'll end up killing every insect out there.
- The Complete Idiot's Guide to Green Cleaning, 2nd Edition:
Old but clean 100 percent cotton T-shirts, clean white cotton tube socks, or 100 percent cotton baby diapers make the best dusters. They are lint free and easily laundered. Everyone has cotton T-shirts and tube socks that have worn out their welcome, so no further manufacturing is necessary. Use what you have at home helping to save our Mother Earth. Then use them as rags when they wear out their welcome dusting.
- The Complete Idiot's Guide to Natural Remedies:
Free radicals, unstable oxygen molecules that harm healthy cells, are generated by activities in the body-in this case, the brain-and all the thinking you're doing. If we eat enough of the good stuff, there's a good chance we'll have enough antioxidants to scavenge these bad boys and put them in their place. If not, and the production of free radicals overwhelms our antioxidant defense, our delicate brain cells could be in for a bruising, resulting in plaque buildup and less-than-optimal brain function.
These books are extremely user-friendly and easy to read. From light green to dark green, anyone can find useful and new information in the eco-friendly Complete Idiot's Guides.
