All You Need Is Less

Dopting an eco friendly lifestyle without either losing your mind from soul destroying guilt or becoming a preachy know it all whom everyone loathes It's all gotten kind of complicated hasn't it This whole eco friendly thing seems to have devolved into a horrific cycle of guilt shaming and one upping and as a result people are becoming exhausted It doesn't have to be this. I loved this book and am happily trying many of Madeleine Somerville s tips and recipes She is able to write about going green so that it makes it easy and she also gets the point across as to why it is necessary to make the change gradually Her writing is too the point yet funny I have been passing her tips and recipes on to friends and family and many of them are also making some changes I was hesitant at first about the shampoo and conditioner recipe but I have found that it is easier cheaper better for the environment and my hair feels and looks wonderful I wish I had listened sooner because I haven t had one tangle since I started using her recipe I haven t gotten brave enough to try the toothpaste but that may eventually come Many of the cleaning tips I already do so getting tips on new things will help me to make that change a little bit I highly recommend reading this book and making the life change We shouldn t have to own everything we see or want When do we say enough is enough and become happy with what we have Reduce re use recycleI was given a copy of this book for the purpose of review
