Subtitled "Your everyday shopping guide to environmentally safe products," (and sub-sub-titled: "A practical, brand-name directory to supermarket, natural food store, and mail-order shopping",) The Green Pages is a helpful little book that helps you as a consumer make informed decisions on a wide variety of products. If you're looking for an ecologically correct brand of laundry detergent or deoderant or paper towels, or even auto parts, you'll find it here. Each section tells about common chemical components of various products and their effects on the environment, gives tips on how to conserve resources, and tells you how to contact a company about their products. In the back there's an index of mail order catalogs and 800 numbers. My only complaint about The Green Pages is that my copy is out-of-date; it was published in 1990 by The Bennett Information Group. I found mine at a used book store, and I imagine there are plenty of copies floating around somewhere if you want to get your hands on one.
