    more from this reviewer

    A few months ago I read a book that totally changed my life: Gar

    A few months ago I read a book that totally changed my life: Garbology by Edward Humes.

    From that moment on, I have changed many of my wasteful habits and started going green(er) than I previously had been.  Most of these changes end up saving me money as well!

    One day after reading Garbology, I was at the library and randomly picked up Do One Green Thing by Mindy Pennybacker.  I knew it was a book I needed to own because of all the great tips, so once I got home I ordered my own copy.

    What a smart choice!  Because this book is one of the best!  I have learned so much from this book to make myself and my world a little greener, to make healthier eating choices, and to save some money in the process.

    Some of the things I will take with me are. . .

    The best fish choices for my health and the environment

    Which foods to purchase organic and which ones I can skip

    That some microwave safe plasticware still leaches hazardous materials (the book describes which ones do that!)

    The difference between hand washing and dishwashing dishes - both environmentally and financially

    Plus this tidbit: "Replace one 6-ounce can of albacore "white" tuna with one 6-ounce can of wild Alaska salmon, and reduce your mercury intake by 89 percent."  After reading that, we no longer buy canned tuna fish, but we buy canned Alaskan salmon.  It's a little more expensive, but it takes almost the same when made in the normal "tuna fish" way.

    I also have about 50 other sticky notes on pages with green info, plus a few I photographed (like the one about the healthiest fish, so I have it in my phone for reference at restaurants!).

    I highly highly recommend Do One Green Thing.  The book is full of valuable information for going green, and most of the tips end up saving you money!

    What do you do to be green?

    Thanks for reading,

    Rebecca @ Love at First Book

    Great read

    This book is a great read for those wanting to become more eco-friendly without turning their lives upside down. You can take big steps or baby steps. There is no judgement, just ideas for moving in the right direction to help the earth and help with a healthier lifestyle. I first checked it out from my local library, but then bought 3 copies: 2 as gifts and one to keep as my own reference manual.

    This is the book I've been waiting for! Green living simplified!

    Finally, a book based on the latest science that gives practical, user-friendly advice on how to live green for your own personal well-being and for the well-being of our Earth. I love the information and the easy to understand advice.

    This book is terrific for helping to sort through the green hype!!

    I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in living a "greener" life. Ms Pennybacker does a great job of laying out easy to understand and follow suggestions that simplify the choices we make to actually make a difference. I appreciate her attention to the latest information on what actions truly have an impact.
