Whether you are purchasing, renovating, or just trying to maintain your current home, True Green Home is the perfect go-green guide. Utilizing the same straightforward and fresh design of the earlier True Green books, this inspired reference provides 100 simple yet potent ways to incorporate environmentally friendly living?inside and outside of your home. Authors Kim McKay and Jenny Bonnin believe we can all create a sustainable environment, and they show you, in a positive, easy-to-implement way, how to start with your own living space.

Each illustrated spread reveals a tip that’s practical and manageable, and explains how it will help the environment. Try the kitchen staple of baking soda and a little water to clean coffee and tea stains. Continue the greening outside by using companion planting and native plants to keep pests at bay and invite insect eaters such as birds into your garden. Simple yet authoritative, True Green Home is an indispensable roadmap to environmental preservation.

This is a pretty easy read. I didn't find a lot of information in it that could be applicable to Canada though. Most of it applies to the US or Australia (where the group who publishes it originates). Plus, since it was written in 2007, there have been some changes to laws, environmental information updates, etc.
