Description

Try This at Home offers a unique combination of do-it-yourself activities supported by entertaining, up-to-the-minute info on why it's easy — and smart — to be eco-chic. Green tweens will satisfy their eco-consciousness while putting their creativity to work with more than 20 planet-friendly projects. From a practical guide to tuning up your bike to tips on holding a book swap or saying arrivederci to fast food by making your own pizza, readers will be inspired to make choices that help the environment. Plus, style-conscious tweens will love the fashion-forward — and budget-friendly — ideas, such as hip recycled T-shirts, eco-chic bags, and funky hardware jewelry. And, green gifts like make-your-own foosball, gadget cases, and wrapping ideas will help readers spread their talents — and their message. Plus, Hot Facts on Global Warming, an Eco-IQ quiz, and profiles of green kids show how small eco-actions can have big results.
