Review: The Carbon-Free Home is Completely Legit.

Jetson Green (no relation), recently reviewed The Carbon-Free Home by Stephen and Rebekah Hren. They had a few nice things to say about the book, which we appreciate. And they’re giving away a copy to one of their lucky readers. Check out their full review here.

To give you an idea of the quality material contained in the book, here’s a review comment from the green guru Bill McKibben: “It’s hard to imagine a more comprehensive, and comprehensible, guide to making your home work for you and for the planet, inside and out.  It’s frugal, it’s sensible, and it will help!”  I’d like to echo the comments of Bill McKibben myself, because this book is completely legit.

I’ve found this book to be incredibly resourceful — it’s thorough, practical, and authentic.  Plus, the authors know what they’re talking about.

I agree. Stephen and Rebekah are the real deal. Thanks for the review!
