What’s new in this second 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.  This book 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.  Some time by 2040, or between that and 2050, is seen as the definitive benchmark for the future, for better, or for much worse.  If we have not changed, the consequences for life on Earth, and Earth itself are dire.  May we change for the better, and sooner rather than later!

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. The printer/ distributer is committed to improving environmental performance by reducing CO2 emissions and reducing, reusing, and recycling waste. The book is printed in black and white, and is print on demand (POD) to reduce waste and pollution.

A Note From The Publisher

Recipe For A Green Life is a great educational tool, written with a great passion to serve and make a positive impact.  As an indie publisher we totally depend on word of mouth, reviews, and shares, in order to create a far-reaching positive impact.  Your part in this is needed and dearly appreciated.  Please, do consider giving this book a public review (multiple platforms welcome), and recommend it to students, friends, coworkers, and communities.
