Your home is green, your car is green, heck even your food is green! ...But what about your career? The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Green Careers ($10) written by Barbara Parks and Jodi Helmer basically goes through all sorts of green jobs out there - from those in farming to renewable energy to green building, detailing the basic duties, pros and cons, requirements, and salaries of each position. It goes into detail on how to eco-fy your current career and tips for those looking to make a lateral move…say an arborist, for example, makes just $9.50 an hour, on average. If said arborist simply just loves working with plants, she could get her bachelors degree and become a horticulturist, bringing her salary up to $52,052 a year. Ahem, that’s a lot of green for being green.
