Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With all the attention on living sustainably, the one thing missing from the conversation is how to find a personal connection with green living that will sustain us on our green path. While practical approaches to an eco-responsible lifestyle offer important first steps, it is critical that we ground these actions in broader understanding so that we can effect real change in the world.

In this book, Stephanie Kaza describes what she calls the “green practice path.” She offers a simple, Buddhist-inspired philosophy for taking up environmental action in real, practical, and effective ways. Discover new ways to think more deeply about your impact on the natural world, engage in environmental change, and make green living a personal practice based in compassion and true conviction.

Synopsis:

There has been a flood of attention given to the small actions we can take to live in a more environmentally friendly way--from reducing water use to conserving electricity. Building an eco-responsible lifestyle is a great first step, but to affect real change in the world we must learn how to look beyond our own lives and connect to the larger issues.

In this unique book, Stephanie Kaza makes that big-picture connection for us. Influenced by her background in Buddhism, she offers a simple philosophy for engaging in environmental action in real, practical, and effective ways. Readers will find new methods to evaluate their own relationship to the environment, think more deeply about their impact on the natural world, engage in environmental change, and make living green a personal practice that comes from compassion and true conviction.
