You always knew going green was the right thing to do but hemp dresses and recycled t.p. were just so........hippy. Well, Green Chic, the new book by Christie Matheson, shows that there's no reason to go live in a treehouse - it's the little things that make a big difference. For example, did you know that:
- Unplugging your cell phone charger when not in use saves the earth from 100lbs. of carbon emitted each year?
- Using cold water to wash your clothes is much more eco-friendly than hot water and actually prolongs the life of your clothes?
- Eating and buying local products is healthier for you while saving the earth from the exhaust and gas associated with shipping.
Some things I knew, some things I didn't, but the great thing about this book is that it's not preachy. I highly recommend picking up a copy and finding the tips that work for you. Really, it's so easy!!
"So how can I WIN THIS BOOK?"
I'm glad you asked! Just leave me a comment and tell me what you're doing that's green. Anything from sewing your own grocery bag to buying recycled paper towels. It all has an impact and hopefully I can get some great new ideas!
All comments received by Friday will receive one entry which I will then randomly draw out of a hat. I'll be announcing the winner on Monday. GOOD LUCK!!!
