Green Chic: Saving the Earth in Style is the perfect Earth Month book for fashionistas. Author Christie Matheson provides easy tips on how to reduce your carbon footprint without sacrificing style. And she’s tested each and every one! The book covers all aspects of green living from fashion and makeup to home and travel in a fun, witty voice. It’s as if you’re getting advice from your sister or best friend. Seriously, what other environmentalist writer references Audrey Hepburn and Jackie O?
The book will certainly change the way think as you start becoming aware of the little things you can do that make a big difference. And if it changes your fashion or style, it’s only for the better. As someone who knows Christie, I can vouch that you’re learning from one smart, classy woman.
Before you buy the book, go to iGive.com and register with your favorite charity (I contribute to Best Friends Animal Society). The site has 731 stores that donate a percentage of their sales to whatever charity you select. Barnes & Noble is currently running a spring shopping promotion and have increased their donation to 3.2%. Plus, if you shop via iGive.com, you receive 20% any Barnes and Noble home item through April 8. I suggest getting Ecojot’s 100% Recycled Green ReThink Journal to keep track of the improvements you make after reading Green Chic.
