You can't pick up a magazine or newspaper today without seeing at least one reference to "being green." Wiley's books Raising Baby Green and Green Living For Dummies have received very positive responses. Pets and the Planet will address the topic of sustainable living in the context of pets and pet ownership. The book will explain the environmental consequences of pet ownership and offer alternatives to the everyday choices an ordinary pet-owning family makes, highlighting Good, Better, and Best practices. It will cover acquiring pets, choosing pet food (an especially relevant topic to consumers following the widespread pet food recall last year), buying equipment and toys, disposing of waste, avoiding household toxins, and more. It will also give readers specific guidance about putting together an action plan for a pet-friendly, earth-friendly life.
