Instructables is back with this inspiring book focused on a series of projects designed to get you thinking creatively about going green. Twenty Instructables illustrate just how simple it can be to make your own backyard chicken coop, or turn a wine barrel into a rainwater collector.

Here, you will learn to:
  • • Clip a chicken’s wings
  • • Power your lawn mower with solar power
  • • Create a chicken tractor for the city
  • • Water your garden with solar power
  • • Build a thermoelectric lamp
  • • Create an algae bioreactor from water bottles
  • • And much more!

    Illustrated with dozens of full-color photographs per project accompanying easy-to-follow instructions, this Instructables collection utilizes the best that the online community has to offer, turning a far-reaching group of people into a mammoth database churning out ideas to make life better, easier, and, in this case, greener, as this volume exemplifies.
