Do you have a Green Teen or do you want to cultivate one? Peter Shankman writes,

As the first generation to feel the effects of the environmental changes that have been underway for the last several decades, teens are looking for the eco-savvy info they need to minimize their environmental impact at home, at school, and in their communities and get their concerns recognized by school officials, politicians, media, and even their own parents. They’re finding that info in The Green Teen: The Eco-Friendly Teen’s Guide to Saving the Planet, – – a new book by Jenn Savedge, former park ranger and teen activist, and the author of 3 books on eco- savvy living. The Green Teen combines fast eco-friendly tips, interviews with “green teens,” and concrete tools to help teens use their influence and their dollars to go green. Fan them on Facebook today for your chance to win awesome prizes at The Green Teen Book Release Party –
