47 Things You Can Do for the Environment

by Lexi Petronis with environmental consultant Jill Buck, founder of Go Green Initiative

Everywhere you go, people are talking about the environment: how the earth is warming up, how oil- drilling is ruining natural habitats, and how chemicals used in various products are making people and wildlife sick. Ugh. The third book in our “97 Things” series, this book will explore tons of real things for teens to do to make a positive difference in the environment.

“Boosterish advice for teens and preteens looking for ways to board the eco-wagon and bring along some friends. Urging readers to ‘greenify’ house, school, car, community and especially themselves, as well as spread the word to peers, ’rents and politicians, Petronis tallies many more than 47 general ways….The book’s thoroughness is to be praised…”Kirkus Reviews

“Petronis convincingly encourages young people that they can not only positively affect the environment by their own actions, but that they can also influence adults at home, at school, and in their communities to make environmentally sound decisions….This is a common-sense, positive approach to teaching young people about caring for the environment. Recommended.” — Library Media Connection
