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.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Forget the guilt; forget the panic; learn to live green. That seems to be the message of Grist's guide to grassroots sustainability. Readers familiar with the online magazine's credo will know what to expect: "We believe that news about green issues and sustainable living doesn't have to be predictable, demoralizing, or dull. We butter the vegetables! And add salt!" Wake Up and Smell the Planet supports that philosophy with helpful suggestions about making little choices that ultimately make a big difference. A cheering answer to "What can I do?"
Associate Press Illinois
The eco-experts of the green news website Grist.org can help anyone chose to go green with [their] new book, Wake Up and Smell the Planet.
Outside Magazine
Funny, fast-paced, and detailed . . . [Given 5 stars on the] Green-O-Meter.
San Jose Mercury News
Here's a guide from [the GRIST.org editors] that covers all the essentials.
Seattle Times
This is our kind of book. . . . a groovy green heap o' advice for working, working out, eating, shopping, commuting, raising kids, raising pets - basically, for life.
The Hartford Courant
