Overview

"This inspiring title offers many ways that readers can adopt a greener lifestyle without going overboard. Illustrated with photos, this is based on the author's own experiences. Insted of going cold turkey, there are many small lifestyle changes that will ultimately make a big difference." - Connie Krochmal, Bellaonline

You’ve been wondering how to reduce your eco-footprint but are intimidated by the idea that nothing less than installing solar panels and going off the grid will work. Nonsense—no need to be scared off by all that “green” noise. You have two goals: saving your money and saving resources—and you can do that by making quiet, gradual changes over time and still living your life the way you live it now.

This is not about ripping out all the offending objects in your house in one afternoon and upgrading with the latest in high-tech green toys. The author outlines how he and his wife first began making small changes around the house to save electricity. They cut their power bill in half. Then they moved to recycling and brought their garbage down to almost nothing. Chip Haynes walks the reader through every low-impact, low-tech solution—from power to recycling to shopping to transportation—with the important distinction that it won’t cost you more than you save. You can live light and go green the easy way, within your budget and stress-free. You really can.

Wearing Smaller Shoes is all about making small changes over time, and staying comfortable with everything you do. It’s about going green without having to brag about it. (But you could if you wanted to.)

Chip Haynes is a graphic artist and writer living in the center of suburbia in Pinellas County, Florida, with his wife, the lovely JoAnn.

    This book is so much fun to read! It offers dozens of ideas on how to create an eco-friendly lifestyle and become happier in the process. Chip makes the journey to sustainable living an adventure. There is a great deal that individuals can do, regardless of whatever the government does or doesn't do, to protect the environment.
