We are becoming more and more eco friendly in this house. Cleaners, grocery bags, sponges…we are slowly making our green mark.

I’ve recently had the opportunity to review a new book that makes going green a little easier. And a little easier to understand.

It gives many resources for green living related to topics like water conservation, electronic recycling, and clothing reuse.  Easy things that you can do to green your life without spending tons of money.  Maybe even saving money in the process.

The book, The Lazy Environmentalist On A Budget, by Josh Dorfman, is our guide to making those changes one step at a time.

From the site “The Lazy Environmentalist”

Josh Dorfman takes you inside the latest developments in green living to demonstrate how you can easily and affordably have your designer jeans and your planet too. From raising eco-conscious kids to greening your daily commute, Dorfman provides insights into the next wave of green innovation and the environmental solutions that will lighten your planetary impact and lower your expenses.

About the author: Josh Dorfman is the author of The Lazy Environmentalist: Your Guide to Easy, Stylish, Green Living (Stewart, Tabori & Chang) and host of The Lazy Environmentalist television series on the Sundance Channel. Dorfman is also the founder and CEO of Lazyenvironmentalist.com, a resource for consumers seeking the best green products and services, and of Vivavi, a retailer of modern, green furnishings.

    fantastic!! I have been using my cloth bags for a while now and I’d love the book for more tips on going green!

    I love burt’s bees products but didn’t know that they were making an all natural insect repellent! So, that’s what I learned! Thank you!
