In honor of Earth Month 2011, The Green Scene is giving away free green items to our readers over the course of April.
The first item up for grabs is a book titled This Green House: Home Improvements for the Eco-Smart, the Thrifty, and the Do-It-Yourselfer.
By best-selling author of The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook Joshua Piven, This Green House offers more than 70 earth-friendly projects for the home, which includes building an outdoor solar shower, growing mushrooms in a basement, building a plastic bag dryer, capturing and reusing rainwater, building a composter, and raising trout in your swimming pool.
Piven aims to shrink your carbon footprint and soothe your eco-anxiety with this homeowner's manual that's as funny as it is practical. The book shows you how to green every room in your house and enjoy doing it. Projects range from the quick and easy to big-time home alterations.
To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment on this post. The deadline to enter the giveaway is Thursday, April 14, at noon. The winner will be selected from a random drawing.
