    This book certainly fulfills it's title, but it is so much more.

    What a dynamite book! Go Green, Save Green is full of great tips on how to cut back on waste and excess in almost all areas of our lives, saving money in the process. It also teaches us how to better live in harmony with God and the world He created, making our lives more simple (don't we all need this!) and more holy. Learn to live your life with purpose and in a manner that helps you to love your neighbors as yourself. Learn to put away the pride and materialism of this world, to live more as God desires us to live.

    Amazing Book!!

    This is an amazing book offering a plethora of practical tips which are easy to implement. Not only does the book offer what to do to save energy and resources, but how much money you personally can save by changing certain aspects of your life. This is the first book that has truly inspired my husband and I to make numerous changes in the way we live.

    Going Green, Saving Faith

    Nancy Sleeth's beautiful book on practical "green" living is so much more. It is also a book about holiness; about putting God at the center of every part of our life. The two are so artfully bonded that following Nancy's precepts will certainly bring you closer to God.

    Tips for Going Green & Warm Family Stories

    The way the book was laid out caused me to think this might be a boring read -- more of a reference, perhaps. When I sat down and started reading, the thing reads itself. Almost every green author right now has a top-10 list of how-to-go-green directives. The difference with Nancy's book is that she tells you why it's important to do those things (i.e. statistics about how many gallons of water it takes to produce certain products, etc.).

    The frequent home-spun stories are warm and inviting, as well, causing the reader to identify with the everyday applications of the thousands of tips in the book. Having read the book, I've done a complete overhaul of my house (CFLs, low-flow showerhead, recycling, cloth napkins, water/heating/cooling conservation, as well as used clothing and checking out other used items on Craigslist and Freecycle. THIS is the book that can help all of us save money, remind us of the joys of family, and actively save the planet in our everyday lives. A must-have, for sure.

    Going Green for Reasons of Faith

    In Go Green, Save Green, Nancy Sleeth offers readers countless reasons for greening their lifestyle as well as the practical tools to do so.
    What makes Go Green, Save Green, unique is the way the book weaves together practical advice with spiritual underpinnings.

    A nationally known leader of the growing Creation Care movement, Nancy Sleeth speaks from the heart about why people of faith need to take the lead in helping save the earth. By weaving her family's story of success in greening their own lives and also the spiritual journey they walked in the process, readers can clearly catch a vision of the ways their own lives can be transformed.

    I highly recommend this book to everyone, but especially to those who are searching for a way to live out their faith by becoming a good steward of the planet God has give us.
