    A quick read with nice clean pictures. I read this while watching the Clinton/Obama debate last night, and I found that they were actually touching on some of the same subjects, which made me want to smile and cry at the same time. (Presidential candidates talking about the environment? In a real way? It's my dream come true!!!)) However, it was frustrating to read this in the way that I think most employees feel quite helpless about the decisions that their company makes regarding what they are A quick read with nice clean pictures.

(Presidential candidates talking about the environment? In a real way? It's my dream come true!!!)) However, it was frustrating to read this in the way that I think most employees feel quite helpless about the decisions that their company makes regarding what they are willing to spend their money on, or how much thought they want to put in their purchases. I wish this book had given a little more instruction on how to professionally approach these subjects without coming across as the "green monster."

    This is a quick read with 100 ideas for managers and procurement folks to green the workplace. A lot of it is stuff enviros already know, just applied to a larger setting business setting. Nice web resource list at the back.

    Worst environmental book I've ever read. Yes, I'll admit there are some good ideas & websites. But its the same stuff that's been written about for decades. This was not a "How-to Green Your Business" book. This was a "Don't-you-want-to-be-a-MegaCorporation-patting-yourself-on-the-back" book. Every business example lowered my opinion of the value of the book. What a lot of PR propaganda & green washing. "Triple-bottom-line" yourselves! It was repetitive & (for the most part) vague...so there might have Worst environmental book I've ever read. Yes, I'll admit there are some good ideas & websites. But its the same stuff that's been written about for decades. This was not a "How-to Green Your Business" book. This was a "Don't-you-want-to-be-a-MegaCorporation-patting-yourself-on-the-back" book. Every business example lowered my opinion of the value of the book. What a lot of PR propaganda & green washing. "Triple-bottom-line" yourselves! It was repetitive & (for the most part) vague...so there might have been 40 unique ideas that I'd heard about in the 80s, with another 10 from the 90s. Even my teenager noticed the repetition within 1/2 hr of reading, as well as not finding anything 'new.' Seriously, who doesn't know that you should use both sides of a virgin piece of paper?! (No, I didn't ask if everyone is or will do it...) I would have been much more interested if they'd highlighted unique businesses rather than SC Johnson, General Electric & Office Depot. They mentioned a few in passing...what a shame they overlooked that goldmine. Really, who is the target market here? I would think the people truly interested in buying this book would be small & medium-sized business owners/managers/directors. This book didn't highlight a single non-corporate multi-million $ company. One even said that even cutting 1% of their pollution was a huge deal...because they create such a HUGE amount of pollution' that's like saying, "You should be happy that we only poison your food 99% of the time!" Truly uninspired.

    I got some really good ideas from the book but it seemed like they were trying to stretch the subject to make the '100 ways' I got some really good ideas from the book but it seemed like they were trying to stretch the subject to make the '100 ways'

    The "little guy" in the work environment won't find much here he can do on his own to save the environment, but the "big guys" would! The "little guy" in the work environment won't find much here he can do on his own to save the environment, but the "big guys" would!

    Good for employers, not so good for employees. Great ideas to think about, though.

    If you want to basics its a great book, or a to do list. A lot of the information can be found elsewhere with greater detail.
