Updated and expanded with more than 1,100 independently reviewed local listings of green businesses, retailers, service providers, and organizations in the Los Angeles area, this guide is an indispensable reference for eco-friendly shopping. It also offers practical advice and environmental tips that can easily be followed at home. Listings range from organic restaurants and grocery stores to dry cleaners, organic pest-control services, and sustainable building suppliers including landscapers and interior designers. All listings are vetted by a research team and then rescreened through local expert advisers, providing shoppers with confident, reliable choices. Some listings are further recognized with a "green leaf" award, which gauges green businesses on a scale of one to four leaves, four being the greenest. This guide is a truly complete resource for green living.Arbuckle, Nancy is the author of 'Greenopia', published 2008 under ISBN 9780978506421 and ISBN 0978506421.
