*Starred Review* So many so-called green books are littered with sage statistics and alarmist statements but contain little to no practical, everyday ecological ideas. Colorado-based designer and Natural Home editor Wasinger quietly promotes her own brand of sustainability, starting with the materials (recycled paper with agri-based ink) used to fashion her 30-item craft collection. Everything here is fresh in terms of style, dynamic, and fairly easy to complete, thanks to the step-by-step color photographs, well-labeled directions, and notes to ensure a quality finished product. Skills are not difficult to acquire, whether it is simple cutting and taping or carpentry. Plus, the designs are impressive: bamboo trays, an old-suitcase given new life in “tray jolie,”and a six-pack screen that separates rooms, among many other items. Finally, the layout not only complements the author’s eco-theme but also calls attention to the important elements of the different crafts to make. Doing good was never so satisfying. --Barbara Jacobs

The winter months can be kind of a bummer, but this book really got me motivated -- I've already started 2 projects.... her ideas are fantastic and leave plenty of room for artistic license.
Pros: Good looking objects that you could use for home decor, or selling online; Very inspirational! You will rethink what you throw in your recycling bin! I've always kept solid metal objects, metal scrap, etc., but would never think to reuse cheap plastic grocery bags -- but Susan shows you how to make them into thick, functional lamp shades.
Cons: I would never use office staples or cheap glue to assemble an object when I could wire or solder something, but then again, that also inspired me to think of different ways to assemble some of the projects.
I hope that Susan will write another book soon. I'd love to see what else she's come up with. My sisters and I will post photos as we complete our projects.
