A environmentally friendly lifestyle impacts all facets of life- social, physical, mental, your local community and the other nations on a grander scale. Sometimes, choosing a green path can seem overwhelming. Kali Orkin, blogger at Sustainability with a Conscious is on it! Her new book seeks to get people get one foot at the path to green sustainable living. I had the opportunity to review 100 Ways to Live Greener by Orkin. Kali wrote the book in order to get out the message about how our actions affect our environment, both physical and social.
This book is a great read. It would make a great gift for people wanting to choose a lifestyle change but are unsure of what step to take. Know a college student? This should be on the reading list. I love how this book addresses different areas of life.
A small con is that the book seems short at 50 pages. However, it does have 100 awesome ideas and ways to empower you to think critically about your lifestyle. Also, it would fit perfectly on a kindle.
Another positive is that it is organized by topic. This is awesome because you can look at the section you want, has something for everyone. It is great for beginners and tips for novices as well. The DIY yourself may have something for you :D All in all I fully support the purchase of the book! I love how it talks about the importance of promoting community and neighbors, something that has been forgotten about in our society. It is much easier to care about the environment where you care about those you live near to.
Her blog is a perfect way to take sustainability further if you are interested. In conjunction with the book, they are truly about small steps you can take and still be an effective change.
