This book has everything I always wanted to do. Very helpful information from decluttering to natural skin care. If you want to live more responsible towards the Earth, read this book. This might take some time to make all the changes, but it’s better to do something that not doing anything. I am on my way to a more sustainable life, but I already feel so much better. Since I was a child I knew I want to live green in any way I can. Originally I bought this book for a family member, but am leaving it for myself and buying another one. The book itself is made with trees from responsible sources.I think the formatting of the book is well organized, which makes it easy to read.
This book is great. If your trying to live more green then i recommend this book. It’s small in size.
Great little book with a plethora of information on how to live green.
This is a helpful starter book if you are wanting some tips to start living a more sustainable life. The illustrations are also super cute and artsy! The only thing that surprised me was how small it was.
when she received this book. I may even get a copy for myself.
Loved this book
Live Green: 52 Steps for a More Sustainable Life by Jen Chillingsworth shows the reader how to live an eco-friendly lifestyle. With cover to cover captivating artwork, innovative ideas and suggestions leap off the pages of Live Green.Topics on sustainability include sprucing up the home with anti-pollutant plants, spicing up the dinner table with wholesome foods, buying natural products for hair and skin, and creating Christmas decorations from organic materials.In addition to ideas to encourage a greener lifestyle, the author lists sources of inspiration for those who want to dig deeper.My favorite chapter, “Eat Green,” challenged me the most. As a two-year breast cancer survivor, the quest to eat healthier stretched me to try healthier foods and forego sweets, deli meats, and soft drinks. I would encourage the reader, if this seems daunting, to incorporate changes slowly. Even for the most determined, it takes time to make significant lifestyle adaptations.The underlying theme of Live Green begins with awareness. I recommend start simple. For example, I began with growing herbs beside our front door and planting lettuce and onions in a winter garden. More strategies in Live Green include how to compost and buy product in bulk.Modest changes like bagging groceries in hemp or cloth bags instead of plastic ones helps the environment. For Christmas, I gifted reusable straws to my daughters. After years of hounding me to recycle, they are impressed with how far I’ve come. Small adaptations help sea creatures not only to survive but thrive.Live Green, in fifty-two steps, is one gigantic leap toward helping all of us to live greener. Future generations will thank us, and our oceans, air, forests, birds, honeybees, and animals will reap the benefits of our more sustainable life choices.
