Eco Guides are trendy, stylish books that give school-age readers realistic and practical advice on how they can live an eco-conscious life, right now. And that action can be taken by themselves, with their family, or as part of a school or community group. In A Teen Guide to Eco-Gardening, Food, and Cooking, readers learn how to grow things in even the smallest of spaces, source eco-friendly food, think about water, energy and packaging waste, and prepare delicious dishes.
