Gorgeously Green, by Sophie Uliano
First line: “If I make one tiny positive change today, I consider myself green.”
Finally, an instruction manual for going green without losing your life. It seems like the shrill battle cry of the green movement until now has consisted of “sell everything, you horrible capitalist pig, and move to a yurt in the Montana wilderness. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to get to Bonnaroo.” Sophie Uliano’s Gorgeously Green is an eight step program (with an accompanying web site) that lays out practical advice on going green for everything from beauty to travel that is easy to read and not at all preachy. About time!
For: Earth-friendly changes without the nasty side effect of unshaven armpits and hemp clothing. – Jenny Coon Peterson
