You want to do something for the planet, but what? Change a light bulb, install a low-flow faucet, eat organic? How about ride 4,700 miles across America on a bamboo bicycle, using only water from natural sources, avoiding fossil fuels almost completely, supplying your few electrical needs with solar power, and creating nearly zero waste?

Sound crazy? Maybe. But not if you're Rob Greenfield. Then it sounds like a pretty amazing way to bring your message to as many people as possible, and to have a great time doing it. Dude Making a Difference is Greenfield’s first-person account of an incredible adventure in radical sustainability. Join him as he pedals from coast to coast in three-and-a-half months while:

  • Creating only 2 pounds of trash
  • Using just 160 gallons of water
  • Eating 284 pounds of food from grocery store Dumpsters

This one-of-a-kind travelogue will inspire you to re-examine your relationship with the Earth's resources. Greenfield's captivating stories of life on the low-impact road are rounded out by practical guides to help you reduce your personal ecological footprint and plan your own larger-than-life adventures. Greenfield's proceeds from the sale of Dude Making a Difference will be donated to 1% for the Planet.
