Environmentally friendly practices are crucial to the mission of museums, which, as houses of preservation, are uniquely suited to modeling green behavior and sustainability. The Green Museum remains the leading handbook for museums seeking to learn ways to implement environmentally sustainable practices at their institutions, whether they are planning new construction or want to find out how to "green" their day-to-day operations. As environmental sustainability becomes the rule rather than the exception for businesses of all kinds, this new edition features updated standards, techniques, and information as well as new case studies.

The Green Museum is a must-have comprehensive guide, filled with examples and resources for anyone in a position to bring positive change to a museum, zoo, aquarium, recreational park or educational facility. An essential read, not only for sustainability coordinators or facility managers, but for environmental educators, interpreters, designers and curators. The updates in this second edition make this book relevant in the fast changing world of green technology standards and certification. -- Jose Marcos-Iga, president of the North American Association for Environmental Education
