On a mission to not only eat as healthy as possible, but also to be more environmentally friendly in general, I was thrilled to read this book! It really puts into perspective the impact each of us has on the environment from products we put on our bodies, foods we eat, cleaners we think we are "cleaning" with and ways we can we can teach our kids to love and respect the environment.

This book covers so many areas to help you make more informed decisions about living "greener". It's easy to read and not condemning in any way if you don't fully live the lifestyle outlined in the book. Great resource!
