Building the Green Economy


Product Description
Product Details


"This is a practical book about on-the-ground successful green businesses and neighborhood initiatives that live sustainability, not just talk it. There are also pages of Crisp interviews with practitioners and thinkers including Rocky Anderson, Mayor of Salt Lake City and Lois Gibbs, the extraordinary organizer against toxics regarding this emerging sub-economy that challenges greed, concentrated power and destruction."
-Ralph Nader,, Dec 17, 2007

"Like politics, all sustainability is local. A sustaining world can only be measured as the sum of trillions of answers executed at the grassroots level. This book inspires us to look closely for the issues that face us all everywhere."
-William McDonough, co-author of Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things

"Building the Green Economy tells the real stories of what is both possible and necessary to restore power (metaphorically and literally) to the people, to save the nation, and save our world. It should be on every American's 'A' reading list."
-Thom Hartmann, Air America radio host and author of Cracking the Code: The Art and Science of Political Persuasion

"Building the Green Economy: success stories from the grassroots, by Kevin Danaher, Shannon Biggs and Jason Mark will help you see us, humanity, again. It is a manual for those of us who need to remember we are a can-do people, full of intelligence, heart, courage, and, sometimes, wit. A staff of a book, to lean on in these hard times."
-Alice Walker, author of The Color Purple
