Praise For Green Goes with Everything: Simple Steps to a Healthier Life and a Cleaner Pla

"A must-read for anyone who cares about the health of their family and our wonderful blue planet. Sloan has done a lot of background investigation to support the incredible information that is given in a very reader-friendly and engaging style." -- Professor Wangari Maathai, Winner of the 2004 Nobel Peace Prize, and founder of The Green Belt Movement



"Sloan Barnett has written a thoroughly researched, highly readable handbook for 'cleaning up our act' at home. Follow even a little of her advice, and your children will eat healthier, breathe cleaner air, and learn for themselves how to identify and avoid potentially toxic materials." -- Dr. John Spengler, Akira Yamaguchi Professor of Environmental Health and Human Habitation, Harvard School of Public Health.



"Barnett's well-written environmental call-to-arms is passionate and authoritative; her findings correlating childhood illnesses with ordinary -- and highly toxic -- cleaning supplies is alarming." -- Publishers Weekly



"Those seeking an easy-to-use handbook with clearly stated actions to take for a greener life will enjoy Barnett's, which organizes its chapters around various aspects of clean: clean body, food, water, air and energy." -- Booklist
