Description
A 2008 Indie Next Pick
In "Confessions of an Eco-Sinner," Fred Pearce surveys his home and then sets out to track down the people behind the production and distribution of everything in his daily life, from his socks to his computer to the food in his fridge. It's a fascinating portrait, by turns sobering and hopeful, of the effects the world's more than six billion inhabitants have on our planet--and of the working and living conditions of the people who produce most of these goods.
