Green up your clean up. The Green Clean book is a practical guide to more eco-friendly house cleaning. With simple guides for laundry, dishes, recycling and more, we found the sample PDF book pages informative and accessible, encouraging us to give the book a closer look.

We found Green Clean because we were curious about DuraBooks, the manufacturer of William McDonough and Michael Braungart's Cradle to Cradle.

DuraBooks are “green” and good for the environment. Made in such a way to be upcyclable, the synthetic “paper” can be melted down and reused in perpetuity, thus sparing trees and reducing toxins in the earth’s ecosystem. Plus - unlike traditional books - they're waterproof, making them good for the beach or the bathtub.

Read more about DuraBooks in This Book Is Not a Tree by Joseph Rinkevich of William McDonough’s firm, MBDC. Do you already own a DuraBook and like the "paper's" upcyclability and very smooth finish? The paper itself is available here.
