Book Lover’s Day: 4 Best Books for Going Green

by Guest Writer

Today is a day for all you book lovers out there. I love to read. As of lately, my favorite books are all non-fiction, and based on environmental issues. I love learning about new ways to put less harm on our environment, and how to repair the damage that has already been done.

1. No Impact Man: by Colin Beavan

Can you imagine going an entire year without creating any harmful impact on our environment? That’s exactly what Colin Beavan did in his book, No Impact Man. The book covers his daily struggles and successes in living a waste free, no impact life for a year including: eating, traveling and transportation, his morning coffee, raising a child, and spending time with his family.

2. Tools for Grassroots Activists: Best Practices for Success in the Environmental Movement

A Patagonia publication that discusses environmental issues, why these issues are happening and what we can do to help. This book covers topics of how to learn what is necessary to create a change in our environment, tools used, fundraising, community and more.

3.The Dirty Life: by Kristin Kimball 

Kimball writes of her experience transitioning from the latte life in New York City, to moving upstate and starting a farm from scratch with her soon to be husband. Kimball takes you through the joys and hardships of moving from cabs to cows.

4. Vegan’s Daily Companion: 365 Days of Inspiration for Cooking, Eating, and Living Compassionately 

This book is perfect for vegans, and even more perfect for non-vegans. The Vegan’s Daily Companion holds tasty vegan recipes, tips and tricks for vegan substitutions and daily lessons on learning compassion. The book approaches transitioning to a vegan lifestyle as much more than a”go vegan or go home” state of mind, but instead helps readers understand the concept of veganism, why it’s important and what it can lead you to learn throughout the process.


What are you favorite books on going green? I’m always up for finding a new read!
