In offbeat, easygoing prose, Scott profiles more than 30 individuals (mostly in their 20s and early 30s) who incorporated their environmental passions into their careers. Examples range from a horticulturalist's work with kids at the Chicago Botanic Garden to a classical pianist who played Carnegie Hall wearing a dress made from 6,000 recycled juice pouches. Informative sidebars and a list of resources encourage readers to adopt green causes, while a color photo insert shows each “Eco-Pioneer.” An encouraging portrait of a can-do generation. Ages 13–up.
