By W. Sears on March 19, 2009
Format: Paperback
The way the book was laid out caused me to think this might be a boring read -- more of a reference, perhaps. When I sat down and started reading, the thing reads itself. Almost every green author right now has a top-10 list of how-to-go-green directives. The difference with Nancy's book is that she tells you why it's important to do those things (i.e. statistics about how many gallons of water it takes to produce certain products, etc.).

The frequent home-spun stories are warm and inviting, as well, causing the reader to identify with the everyday applications of the thousands of tips in the book. Having read the book, I've done a complete overhaul of my house (CFLs, low-flow showerhead, recycling, cloth napkins, water/heating/cooling conservation, as well as used clothing and checking out other used items on Craigslist and Freecycle. THIS is the book that can help all of us save money, remind us of the joys of family, and actively save the planet in our everyday lives. A must-have, for sure.

A singularly interesting and valuable tool for any "greenie", this text is the ultimate for a spiritually-minded person. Combines the best of both areas: ecologically sound, and centered on the Bible. I would send this book to any friends who are confused about their own role in the society in which we live. This is a difficult time for everyone in America, and even those with an adequate source of funds will find money saving tips galore, to reduce wanton expense and therefore have more to donate/give away/share. Start reading and then start DOING. It is easy with this book in your hands. Thanks Mrs. Sleeth.

Wow. An amazingly helpful book absolutely jammed with ideas for how to live green and reduce your carbon footprint. The bonus is that most of these ideas also enable you to drastically reduce your monthly living expenses. A welcome book in these tough economic times.

This book is so full of fascinating, creative actions for environmental stewardship, I forgot to feel "guilty!" The practical activities and consumer advice show me ways to get organized; get healthy; and get smart, with no prior "training" assumed. Not only is the book a "no guilt guide", it is also written for the busy person. It is designed so that the reader can enjoy gathering initial tips and inspiration, lay the book aside, then pick up right where one left off.

Found this at Wheaton College during a camp. It has a lot of good practical guides, but the tips cater towards the upper-middle class white folks.
For example, the book assumes that reader is a home-owner who also has the time and money to switch/trade for a hybrid car. There is also no mention of using public transportation, a stereotypically low-class "colored folks" thing even though public transit is just as good as riding the bike (and safer too). It's not that the book is bad, but it's that if you're not the suburban white type, the book may not be as relevant to your situation and needs.
However, there are a handful of practical tips that most people can apply, such as saving money on healthy snacks, the type of clothes to buy, and cloth diapering.

This book excellently links faith with stewardship.

When it comes to money saving tips, I prefer practical ideas which will aid my family and I in "saving green". Nancy Sleeth's book, Go Green Save Green , is a compendium of ways to save money on household bills, to getting more on a limited food budget, to cutting transportation costs. Go Green Save Green also contains ample ideas on how to curb energy consumption. Nancy Sleeth is passionate about encouraging other Christians to be better stewards of the Earth. So many of the "green living" practices that Mrs. Sleeth writes about, are healthier for the Earth and for God's people. One chapter is devoted to having a Sabbath rest. Once a week, Mrs. Sleeth encourages families to disconnect from the clamour of technology to rest and to be in relationship with God. Mrs.Sleeth gives many tips for making the Sabbath special, such as planning a Sabbath meal and taking a Sabbath walk. Having a day, set aside, for rest and worship, is restorative for man. At the end of each topical chapter in this book, there is a list of specific ways that you can save money , this year. Go Green Save Green is an excellent alternative to the secular, eco-hysteria books. I was pleasantly surprised that saving money and being a better steward of God's Creation are feasible accomplishments.

Nancy Sleeth has an extraordinary gift of writing - of bringing our beautiful world and what we are doing to it to a new spiritual plane. Her own family's experiences are blended with top-quality data analysis and PRACTICAL examples to create one of the best and most realistic green guides in the last decade. If you are familiar with the environmental problems of the world, you either become a 'deep green' or enter a state of despair. What on Earth can I do to make a difference? This book tells you. Day-to-day examples of how a little can mean a lot - at school, in your home, in your work place, in your yard.....What makes it unique is that it then follows Christ's teaching in suggesting how you can use any money you've saved to help environmental projects or those less fortunate than you in your state or across the world. And all the advice is underpinned by a Christian's mandate to fulfill the Kingdom work of protecting God's beautiful planet. Disclosure: I was a researcher for this book. Nancy transformed facts into flowers!
