Summary
When Earth Day started in 1970, an estimated 20 million Americans demonstrated to promote the importance of sustaining a healthy ecological environment. Since then, hundreds of millions of people have joined the Green Movement worldwide and eco-friendly concerns have impacted American life in everything from food and entertainment, education and jobs, and business and media. Evidence of humanity's detrimental impact on the environment is mounting. As Americans, we are confronted daily with news stories, blogs, and social media commentary about the necessity of practicing green behaviors to offset environmental damage. This book is a review of the issues surrounding green living, including the impact of this lifestyle on Americans' time and money, the information needed to adhere to green principles in the 21st century, and case studies and examples of successful implementation. America Goes Green: An Encyclopedia of Eco-Friendly Culture in the United States examines this topic through three volumes organized by A-Z entries across 11 themes; state-by-state essays grouped by region; and references including primary source documents, bibliography, glossary, and green resources. This encyclopedia explores the development of an eco-friendly culture in America and entries present the debates, viewpoints, and challenges of green living
