Overview

Sustainability is the new "bling," and Grist knows how to wear it.
Not a guide about guilt, but about making little choices throughout the day that improve the planet
Grist is the hottest online magazine covering sustainability and popular culture
Like Grist, this is a quirky, humorous, entertaining, and sometimes irreverent read

We all have our morning routines, whether it's making coffee, walking the dog, feeding the kids, a shower and a shave, the office commute, or some combination thereof. And at each of these morning moments-in fact, at any given time throughout the day-we're making choices. What to eat, what to wear, how to dispose of dog poop or diapers, how to travel from point A to point B, where to have a post-work cocktail, and on, and on-this compact and resourceful handbook takes a look at how to simplify and "green" our daily choices, from the moment we get up in the morning, until we finally lay our heads down at night.
