Overview

We are what we eat, but we also are what we use to clean our homes, pamper our skin, and decorate our rooms, according to Renée Loux, accomplished raw food chef, award-winning author, and host of Fine Living TV's Easy Being Green. In her new book, Easy Green Living, she applies her whole-foods philosophy to home, garden, and beauty routines.

Renée Loux demonstrates that being green at home is easy, affordable, and better in every sense of the word. She discusses the daily choices we face that can keep the home, personal care, and beauty routines free of toxins. She exposes the dirt on cleaning products and common hazardous ingredients and reveals her recommendations for greener options, including her "Green Thumb Guides" for choosing non-toxic, eco-smart, and human-friendly products. Peppered with compelling and inspiring facts, Easy Green Living is full of "5 Step" lists, products and recipes for green cleaning, helpful charts, safer choices for every room, and inspirational advice so we can save the planet—one cleaning spritz at a time.

As recent special issues of Vanity Fair, Time, Newsweek, and other major publications have demonstrated, going green is an idea whose time has come. Whether addressing big-picture topics like renewable energy, or offering simple suggestions for everyday living, this complete lifestyle guide shows that healthier choices don't mean a radical or complicated life change—it is, after all, easy to be green.

    Great Book

    Easy reading, educational, helpful. A great book to get started living as much of a green life as possible. I enjoyed every page and utilized quite a bit of the information.

    My favorite green living handbook

    One of the most important things to me is reducing my negative impact on the environment. For this reason, I try very hard to make my life greener every day. To help other people with this, I started an eco-friendly house cleaning company in San Francisco, and I use the information in this book to ensure that I'm not harming the environment by using harmful chemicals or toxins. If you're interested, I have more green cleaning techniques listed on my website: http://www.greenforce.biz

    Comprehensive and Well-Researched

    Easy Green Living, by Renee Loux is an exhaustive guide to eco-friendly living for the home and person. Each chapter reveals the hazardous products to avoid, complete with detailed findings from research. Next, green products to use instead of dangerous ones are described. Finally, each chapter provides resources to find green products. I like that the introduction included the following, with explanations: Being green is not black and white Consider the life cycle of a product Start small Green living is a process The first chapter includes a basic introduction to green living and hazardous materials to avoid. Chapter two covers the basics of green cleaning what to avoid, 6 basic ingredients to use for cleaning and recipes and resources for purchasing green cleaning supplies. Chapter three continues on the cleaning theme, for the kitchen and chapter four covers the bathroom. Chapter five is about personal care products. In addition to makeup and body cleaning products to avoid and use, Loux presents the hazards of conventional antiperspirants, tampons and hair dye and more and provides safe alternatives. Chapter six discusses how to have an eco-friendly laundry. Chapter seven covers green bedding and chapter 8, lightbulbs. Chapter nine discusses furnishings and materials, including paint, flooring and carpeting, kitchen and bath counters, cabinets and candles. Of all chapters, this could be more comprehensive--however, as Loux explains in the introduction, understanding the life cycle of products should make it easy to determine how green any product is. This guidebook will leave few questions about basic green living unanswered, particularly green cleaning. By the author of the award winning book, Harmonious Environment: Beautify, Detoxify and Energize Your Life, Your Home and Your Planet.
