VERY interesting book - and it's written by a Canadian *for* Canadians (so many environmental books are written from & for Americans & have a lot of info that doesn't apply to Canadians). Highly recommend - though you may wonder after reading it what CAN you eat, where or use that doesn't have a negative impact on the people, animals or the environment. :) But Vasil does a good job giving you names of companies or internet sites that *will* offer environmentally-friendly products & information for just about everything.

Fantastic and informative book! Its great reading about the products that are actually readily available to us in almost every store. Some surprising and eye opening information. I would recommend this book to anyone with an interest in protecting themselves and the earth from harsh chemicals.
