Lazy Environmentalist: Zagat for going green


A handy little bookshelf guide for green buying

Sustainability is such a vast field that its easy to get lost. This is especially true for consumers who are looking to vote green with their dollars. How many times have you bought something, only to hear later about a cool, sustainable version of the same product?

Enter Josh Dorfman, founder of Vivavi and host of The Lazy Environmentalist on Sirius Radio. His new book, Lazy Environmentalist, gives a helpful overview . The book is broken into 22 sections, from clothing to…ahem…dying, each of which gives a quick rundown of the issues (under five pages) and suggests resources for further learning and shopping. So whether you want to make a purchase or set yourself up with a nice eternal resting place, you can do it in a fashionable green way.

    I would also recommend checking out “The Better World Shopping Guide” by Ellis Jones
    It is pocket-sized and convenient to take with on the go, though it is sparser in detail.
    (It seems with the plethora of “green living guide books”, there ought to be a “guide to green living guides” that compares the methods each author uses for ranking their recommendations… Anyone know of such a thing?)

    It’s so new, I can’t find it at my local library. I guess I’m going to have to wait, or find a person to loan me the book for a bit.
    It sounds like a nice book.
