    Praise for Workers’ Guide to Health and Safety and A Community Guide to Environmental Health

    Hesperian's Workers' Guide is incredibly useful to factory workers and to all of us who need a better understanding of the toxic chemicals and power relations inside the factories that make the things we use every day. This book helps us take that big step toward sustainability and social justice.
    Annie Leonard, Executive Director, Greenpeace USA

    A Community Guide to Environmental Health is the Where There is No Doctor of community water, sanitation and environmental health. It makes water, health and hygiene accessible to those who need it most. Focusing on the important intersection of public health and risk reduction at the community level for the community, this guide is literally a lifesaver."
