The Green Blue Book

3:04 PM


I've been lucky enough to have had the opportunity to review a few books lately... the latest being the Green Blue Book by Thomas M. Kostigen.

.

As someone who is interested in all things green... I think this is a great little book! So often, we think about the easy way to save materials (and in this case water), but we don't worry about the embodied energy of those same materials. I mean, bamboo flooring may be certified green, but it is still shipped over from overseas, which isn't exactly sustainable. The same kind of thinking can be applied to water conservation and this book really shows you how.

.

The Green Blue Book illustrates exactly how many gallons of water go into your daily foods, materials, resources, and more. Want to know how many gallons it takes to produce your tennis shoes? or your spinach salad? It's all in the book... Which by the way was definitely written by a man. In the clothing section it suggests women can save water by wearing thongs instead of briefs, but doesn't suggest the same for men!

.

The book is a quick and easy read, and a great resource for future purchases. If you're interested check it out...

And, in celebration of World Water Day... today I'm giving out one copy of the book (sent straight from the publisher) to the reader with the best idea for saving water. Put your idea in the comments (with an email address), and if I think your's is the best I will email you for your shipping info.

Can't wait to hear your good ideas!
