Subjects covered in the series include success stories from agriculture, agro-processing, enterprise, energy, building and shelter, water and sanitation and recycling. Based on the Hands On series of video films prepared by the Television Trust for the Environment and broadcast on BBC World, these books promote appropriate invations and environmentally sound solutions which can help reduce consumption. All of the new techlogies and scientific breakthroughs described in the books can be applied by individuals and entrepreneurs at a reasonable cost to themselves and to the community. Some of the initiatives can be applied in the home, while others can be used by entrepreneurs to stimulate green business and small-scale enterprise.
