After graduation I started to pursue a career in sustainable business. I knew that I would have to practice what I would preach, but didn't know where to start. Ten Ways gave me some very practical ideas to jump start my new career path. From the numerous books and movies, to alternative travel options, I have found living a sustainable life as easy as 1, 2, 10! The book is easy to follow and you can pick and choose what chapters interest you most. I was inspired by the personal stories of other twenty somethings' changing the world. Ms. Binder's book has left me empowered and confident that I too could change the world in my twenties.

Libuse Binder's guide thoughtfully invites us to dabble and explore our creative energies in order to identify our true passions and values. The next step is figuring out how to make this voice heard! In Ten Ways, the author offers practical answers to everyday questions as simple as "Why should I recycle" to "What is the best way to let my politicians know where I stand?" Along the same lines, it cleverly assures us that our energy is most powerful when it is organized, therefore reminding us that the most important component is action!
