The Better World Handbook (PDF)

Small Changes That Make A Big Difference

Specifically designed to reach people who normally would not consider themselves activists, The Better World Handbook is directed toward those who care about creating a more just, sustainable and socially responsible world but don't know where to begin. Substantially updated, this revised best-seller now contains more recent information on global problems, more effective actions, and many new resources.
