Living is polluting. Our very presence on the planet makes us all exploiters of its natural wealth and contributors to the vast volume of waste we collectively spew out into earth, air and sea. In essence, we have created today's ecological crisis, not industry or government. After all, it is we who demand industry's products and continue to condone the government's environmentally damaging policies.

This is why the notion of individual responsibility is central to the business of cleaning up the planet and developing sustainable ways of creating wealth in the future. It's down to each and every one of us to do our bit for the future by learning to tread more lightly on the planet right now.

Awareness of just how much we can do is greater than ever before. The last 12 months have witnessed a veritable explosion in 'green concerns' and it is becoming harder and harder for people to go on claiming that there is nothing they can do.

That thin queue between feelings of genuine powerlessness and good old-fashioned laziness has been exposed to a far more rigorous scrutiny But millions of people still feel they lack the basic information they need to change their lifestyle. Going Green Online fills that gap in a no-nonsense, highly practical way. Indeed, as far as our current understanding of green issues goes, it is the definitive guide on how each and every one of us can do our bit for the maintenance of Planet Earth.
