Paper or plastic? Either one takes an ecological toll. Listeners may be intimidated as Daniel Goleman explains the total ecological impact of each purchase or decision. His description of the many steps involved in making a glass jar, for example, can be both fascinating and frightening. His goal is to organize consumers into a force for changing the way companies do business. Goleman narrates his own book with enthusiasm, providing examples of good environmental stewardship, telling listeners where to find information to make eco-friendly decisions, and considering the psychology of consumer decisions. While Goleman, at times, drifts into psychological jargon or unnerving gloom, he also creates a methodology to help consumers make environmentally friendly shopping decisions.
