Brief Review: Everywhere you look these days, some prophet, anchorperson, or politian is preaching the gospel of green: green living, green planet, green products, and even green pets! It's a green, green, green, green world, and you and your dog and cat are in it! According to New York Times best-selling author Eve Adamson, we are obligated to speak up for our furry companions who are unable to think or act green on their own. In Pets Gone Green, Adamson explores how we, as responsible pet owners, can have a positive effect on the environment and our pets' place within it. This engaging new book outline strattegies from your first steps to reduce your carbon footprint (and pawprint) to tackling the bigger, greener, clearer picture. One way to approach this? View the earch more as animals do and less as human beings do. As Adamson says, "This path goes beyond recycling and conservaiton to consider what we think we really need to live full, rich lives.
Reviewers Comments: For the practice that may be reviewing their Green Efforts, this book is helpful as it is written for pet owners. As many of our team members are pet owners/parents, this book may be just the starting point for discussions amongst your team. It is a quick-read book with GREAT tips and ideas. I liked this book because it is written from the citizen participation perspective which can transfer nicely to team activities and business education for a veterinary practice. Shelly Johnson
