"The use of paper, perhaps more than any other single product, reflects the throwaway mentality that evolved during the last century. There is an enormous possibility for reducing paper use simply by replacing facial tissues, paper napkins, disposable diapers, and paper shopping bags with reusable cloth alternatives." –Lester R. Brown, Plan B 4.0: Mobilizing to Save Civilization.
John Elkington reviewed Lester Brown's autobiography Breaking New Ground for the May/June issue of Resurgence and Ecologist. He writes, "I read the book cover-to-cover in a couple of sittings and learned an immense amount in the process, not just about Brown's extraordinary life and times but also about the mind-boggling spectrum of challenges he has taken on."
