Now a days, words like Green Living, sustainable lifestyle or carbon footprint get touted around. Not a day goes by without hearing news on some environmental concern- be it about industrial waste affecting the quality of our water bodies or global warming; which has been found responsible for our erratic weather patterns and many natural disasters around the world!
A question comes up for many people- what can I really do about this? Of course, I can be more informed and elect appropriate government leaders that will work towards our better future- but what can I do at a personal level? How can I make small changes in my own lifestyle that will allow me to live a truly “Green” life- a lifestyle that is not only healthy for me, but is also in-sync with nature and will leave a smaller carbon footprint. This book addresses such a question. It provides a brief understanding on Green Living and sustainable lifestyle, while also providing thought-provoking informative essays on various aspects of a Green Lifestyle- such as organic foods, sustainable fair trade and so on.
