What’s New In This Edition?

Important updates and edits throughout to ensure the book remains a well-rounded and useful reference and handbook for a holistic approach to sustainable, kind living at this pivotal time. According to the IPCC report, by 2030 we need to have made unprecedented, radical changes to our lifestyles and systems around the world in relation to sustainability, renewable energy, diet, agriculture, and everything in order to reduce warming to 1.5°. We need to have divested from fossil fuel extraction and use, and transitioned over to renewable and sustainable energy sources.

Recipe For A Green Life is meant to help us make this transition, on the personal and local level, especially — and with a holistic big picture approach too. We need to be living in more sustainable ways in every aspect of life, business, and culture, starting now. This is urgent. Recipe For A Green Life is practical, helpful, well-rounded, and at the grassroots level.

The E-Book

The e-book format saves trees, water, and lessens waste and pollution, which results via the printing processes. Beyond this, a Greener impact in choosing e-books is up to you. If you read over 44 books on your e-reader you halve your impact on the climate, whereas if you read less than 22 you will greatly decrease your impact. The greater danger is the harm of e-waste. While companies keep releasing more and more models, you can choose to ignore that trend by using one e-reader indefinitely—recycling it at a designated hazardous waste facility when it no longer functions.

The Paperback

The printer/distributor for this book is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC), and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI); and is committed to the ongoing maintenance of its Chain of Custody program under the standards set by these organizations.
