Ready, set, green

Sometimes it seems to me that giving my eco-conscious tips to friends can seem didactic. Other times, I feel like I'm preaching to the choir. (I actually have a friend who, when presented with an eco-dilemma, asks herself "What would Katy do?") The truth is, I enjoy sharing the wisdom I gain as an editor and writer of green issues. That's why I'm jazzed to spread the word about Treehugger's latest book: Ready, Set, Green: Eight Weeks to Modern Eco-Living in which writers Graham Hill and Meaghan O'Neill teach readers how to go LOHAS. Here's what Treehugger -- one of my favorite websites -- has to say...

If you're tired of scanning lists of green tips that don't apply to your life, Ready, Set, Green can help. Our goal wit this book is to debunk common eco-myths and equip you with the knowledge and tools you need to achieve a lifestyle of health and sustainability, whether you're a soccer mom or a rock star. From the truth about what's in your sunscreen to assessing the air quality of your home and workplace, this week-by-week plan can help you shift into a state of pure, green bliss.

Hey, that sounds like Delicious Living. Just one thing: I recommend taking the green message one step further and ignoring Treehugger's advice to go straight to Amazon. Rather, first check to see if your locally owned bookstore carries Ready, Set, Green. See? Even the greenest activists occasionally need a bit of green guidance. I guess it's just another resource from my archive to yours.
