ABOUT THE BOOK
Sustainable living is on nearly everyone’s radar these days, with a growing number of us taking such steps as choosing organic food, driving hybrid vehicles, reducing household toxins and supporting environmental causes. But true sustainability has a lot of moving parts. And getting to a holistically sustainable way of life can be a lot to tackle on your own. That’s why it’s time for a book that puts it all together.
Choosing Sustainability: Your Guide to the What, Why and How covers nearly everyaspect of this subject while remaining easy to follow and digest. Part I begins with an exploration of the obvious questions: What is sustainable living and why is it so important for each of us today? It also describes the “three pillars of sustainability,” environmental, economic and social approaches that can work in tandem to help us achieve a much greater impact. In Part II, the book shifts to “how-to” mode, providing actionable ideas to help readers adopt holistically sustainable choices in every area of life, from food, home and consuming to transportation, work and money. The book can be read from cover to cover. Or you can jump right to a subject that you’re ready to explore.
Choosing Sustainability makes this important yet complex topic accessible, manageable and enjoyable. And it’s a book for everyone because creating a more sustainable world will require the commitment and involvement of each and every one of us.
