No matter how many green guides and books of green tips hit the market, the message bears repeating: we need to cut down on our consumption. The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Green Living by Trish Riley (Alpha, $16.95) helps readers do just that, with a topic-by-topic breakdown that details the big picture issues (like global warming) complete with helpful science definitions in the margins, to saving energy at home, using alternative transportation and taking an “eco vacation.” Rather than just offer suggestions, Riley’s book acts as a primer on the major environmental issues of our time. She explains why even a part-time vegetarian diet is both a global warming issue and a personal one, and how planting more diverse crops in our backyard gardens can help ensure that plant species don’t die out. She mentions the cities that are leading conservation initiatives, such as Seattle, Washington and Huntsville, Alabama, and finds ways to include children in the environmental movement. It’s a way to start thinking about our daily habits so we can learn to not only curb our appetites for more, but to enjoy living with less. —Kelly N. Hughes
Green Festivals for Earth Day and Beyond!
I hope you've been having as much fun as I have during this exciting green season. I enjoyed the Green Apple Music Festival in Miami, then spoke about Going Green through your kitchen at the Heart of a Chef Festival in Miami the next weekend, and now I'm headed to Southern California to speak with Meeting Planners at the InterContinental Hotel Showcase events in San Diego and Los Angeles. GoGreen!
While I'm out west, I'm looking forward to a peek at the Grand Canyon with my son Bud, then to meeting Idealistgifts.com founder Amy Belanger in Phoenix. We think we might be of like minds and we're looking forward to finding out about that!
Enjoy your springtime and let us know how you're going greener every day. Try switching to a non-synthetic soap and shampoo for a truly healthy, clean feeling. You'll be amazed at how fresh it feels when you're not coating yourself with plastic and hormone disrupters in the shower every morning! Cheers!
