Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the pioneer of eco-conscious living...

A committed environmentalist for more than thirty years, Ed Begley, Jr., has always tried to "live simply so others may simply live." Now, as more and more of us are looking for ways to reduce our impact on the planet and live a better, greener life, Ed shares his experiences on what works, what doesn't — and what will save you money!

These are tips for environmentally friendly living that anyone — whether you own or rent, live in a private home or a condo — can try to make a positive change for the environment. From quick fixes to bigger commitments and long-term strategies, Ed will help you make changes in every part of your life.

And if you think living green has to mean compromising on aesthetics or comfort, fear not; Ed's wife, Rachelle, insists on style — with a conscience. In Living Like Ed, his environmentalism and her design savvy combine to create a guide to going green that keeps the chic in eco-chic.

From recycling more materials than you ever thought possible to composting without raising a stink to buying an electric car, Living Like Ed is packed with ideas — from obvious to ingenious — that will help you live green, live responsibly, live well. Like Ed.

Synopsis:

Hollywood's it man for all things green offers large and small ways to live a greener, better life. Packed with eco-ideas from standard to quirky to ingenious, this guide also comes with workbook pages to record readers' progress.
