Summary
"In Be the Change, Greenfield guides young readers through some of the trickiest topics of our time: food and water waste, our dependency on fossil fuels, and our love of money and stuff. What our planet needs, he argues, is for us to embrace sustainable living. Be the Change is Greenfield's guide to doing just that. He describes his own awareness-raising campaigns (dumpster diving to call attention to food waste, for example, or biking across the United States to highlight fossil-fuel dependency), and then explores how readers can make impactful changes in their own lives. No one is too young, he argues, and no action too small. Accessible, inspiring, and visually engaging--photos of Rob's various campaigns and sidebars about young activists bring the text to life--Be the Change introduces a fresh voice to the topics of environmental awareness and sustainable living. It will leave readers wondering how they, too, can make a difference." --
