I confess that I'm one of those crunchy people who bought that giant "Millennium Whole Earth Catalog
" by Howard Rheingold
back in 1994...a tome so enormous that there is simply no book shelf tall enough to house it so it stands on the floor beside a vintage world atlas. I guess it should come as no surprise that I still read books about lowering the human impact on the environment. I'm always looking for ways to make conscious greener choices, but I don't really have the time to do all the research. Recently I discovered some guides that make it a whole lot easier (and take up less space). I've just read Josh Dorfman's
book, "The Lazy Environmentalist: Your Guide to Easy, Stylish, Green Living
". It's a great resource guide for going greener with style for people who need answers, and don't have time to do the digging. There are chapters on eco-friendly clothing, transportation, energy alternatives and even the final frontier... eco- cemeteries.
Walking along the trail today with Satch, we stopped to look at some deer tracks. We picked up acorns for upcoming holiday decorations. All the while I kept thinking, it is vital that we all do what we can to help preserve this kind of beauty for our children. I decided to explore this subject in more depth with someone who has done the research. In the June "Mom to Mom" interview, you'll get the scoop from a national award-winning journalist.
