A good addition to the how-to-go-green genre 17 avril 2014
Par J. Gillette - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book is a good addition to the how-to-go-green genre. I have been actively involved in trying to be "green" for a while and yet this book gave me some new and interesting ideas. Author Madeleine Somerville not only describes things to do, but also how to get your head around the idea of the change so that it actually happens. I especially like that this book was about reducing consumption instead of "just" reusing and recycling. She emphasizes quality over quantity, but also talks about how not getting things you don't need can free you up for the things you really do need, or that is of better quality. For example, if you are buying something secondhand, it will probably be of better quality (and has already shown it can last a while) than to get something new for the same price. The emphasis is on improving quality of life while also making green changes.

Somerville's perky and casual tone is not really my style (she uses phrases like "guys, you need to try this!") but she's likable. The style made me think of the Kiss My Math series by Danika McKellar, but for the green movement.

I already have two people on my list to pass this book to so they can skim it for ideas, and a list of ideas to try myself. I'm giving this book 4 stars.

I received this book as part of the LibraryThing Early Reviewer program

DIY you can actually use 5 avril 2014
Par Rebecca - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Let me begin by saying that I am normally not DIY kind of girl. It isn't that I don't like the idea - I love the thought of being creative and frugal. But often, it's easier said than done. All You Need Is Less makes it easy though, and the author is hilarious as well as informative. If you want a sample of her writing style, she also has a blog - go read it, you won't be disappointed! Even if you're craft-challenged like me, this is a must-have.

A fun-to-read guide for living green and saving money 29 avril 2014
Par Lisa Mom of 2 - Publié sur
Format: Broché
All You Need Is Less is a funny, real and practical guide to living green while saving money. And it does so without vilifying anyone who uses plastic bags and Lysol.

Eco-blogger Madeleine Somerville even starts the book right away with a laugh at how most eco-friendly books start: "terror-inducing lists of the carcinogenic chemicals you are liberally slathering all over every single surface of your house, painting you as an unwitting eco-villain, happily Lysol-ing you way straight to Hades." (I know what she's talking about - I have some of these books!)

"Well, Lady, you can just relax and unpack your bags - we won't be going on any guilt trips today," she says.

The book is organized into 10 chapters:

Chapter 1: Home
Chapter 2: Body
Chapter 3: Lifestyle
Chapter 4: Food and Drink
Chapter 5: Gardening
Chapter 6: Relationships
Chapter 7: Health & Wellness
Chapter 8: Baby
Chapter 9: Pet
Chapter 10: Holidays

Each chapter is filled with practical tips, a "make it" section with recipes for natural products including all-purpose cleaner, hardwood floor polish, baby wipes and body scrubs, and how-to's for composting, gardening and living simply.

And they're not weird, go-to-some-odd-store-40-miles-from-home-to-buy-the-ingredients kinds of tips. They're actually simple enough for anyone to follow.

For example, did you know you may have many multi-purpose products in your house right now? Madeleine shares many including one we have had sitting in our fridge - apple cider vinegar. I didn't know how versatile it was until reading page 180. Apple cider vinegar can be used as a facial toner, hair conditioner, flea repellent, sunburn reliever, itchy-skin calmer and so much more, and you can find recipes for these as well.

In chapter 3, "Lifestyle," the facts about home size over time are eye-opening. The average home size of 983 square feet in 1950 tripled to 2,480 in 2011, despite the average family size decreasing from 3.37 people in 1950 to 2.6 today. The reason? The availability of easily acquired consumer goods. Madeleine offers a solution - sharing ("beg, barter, borrow") instead of owning everything yourself. And start by approaching a friend or neighbor and generously offering them the use of something of yours. Though neighborhoods aren't what they used to be - I still don't know many of our neighbors after living here 7 years - perhaps starting a bartering system can help people get to know each other (and save each other money!!!).

A great frugal-living book, I love her reasoning behind shopping secondhand. "Buying secondhand is the absolute best way not only to save some cash, but to make sure that you're getting a quality product too. You know those stores that offer shoes for ten dollars, or shirts for five? I can almost guarantee that you're not going to ever see those items in a decent secondhand store."

In other words, items in a secondhand store have already stood the test of time - so the condition you find it in is the condition in which it will remain, so you know you're getting (usually) a quality item.

Overall this is a fun book worth buying to help you live green and save money!

I received this book as part of a blog tour.

Practical guide to green living 14 avril 2014
Par Charity - Publié sur
Format: Broché
What a fun read on sustainable living! The author has a friendly, chatty style -- for me, this made the book much easier to read, but if occasional rambling irritates you, then you may not like it. She offers practical suggestions for making your life more eco-friendly, but at the same time maintains a realistic approach, recognizing that not all her suggestions will work for everyone. She emphasizes that doing even a few things is better than doing nothing.

She's quite thorough, covering everything from cleaning recipes to gardening to holidays. There's a helpful index in the back of the book so that you can find everything quickly. And she included my favorite "green" tip -- wrap birthday presents in comics! (My mom has been doing this as a money-saving tactic for as long as I can remember.)

Reduce, Re-use, Recycle 13 mai 2014
Par Heather - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
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 more tips on new things will help me to make that change a little bit more. 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, recycle.

I was given a copy of this book for the purpose of review
