Why It's Green
The Renewable Energy Book gives practical advice on how to get your home running on clean, renewable, free power. By installing a renewable energy system in your home or office you can significantly reduce your energy consumption, as well as your electricity or heating bills. The book itself is not especially green (e.g. it's not made from recycled paper), but if it helps you move off-grid then it'll more than pay for itself.
How To Recycle
A paperback book can always be recycled in municipal paper recycling centers, but this should always be a last resort. As long as you don't drop it in the bath, a paperback will remain readable for decades. Once you are done with the book, share it around with your friends and family, or give to a charity shop.
