Books & Reviews Archives

I’ve always been a big Barbara Kingsolver fan, and ever since I read Animal, Vegetable, Miracle I’ve been trying to read more books about environmental issues that effect our health and happiness, including eating, cleaning and other home-related topics. I plan to write a review for each of the books I read in this category of the blog.

The Eco-nomical Baby Guide

The Eco-nomical Baby Guide

I love books like this that give a little extra motivation for living more sustainably. In this case, saving money. The book shows you how to reduce the average expense of first-time parents from almost $7000 to under $1000 in the first year.
