Going Green, Living Fresh

It's easy to feel overwhelmed by the critical state of our environment and to wonder what we, as individuals, can do to really make a difference. But greening your life and raising a healthier family is easier than you think - and more affordable!

Thanks to green living expert Sara Snow, you can transform your home and your life by taking small, simple steps. Sara Snow's Fresh Living: The Essential Room-by-Room Guide to a Greener, Healthier Family and Home is hot off the presses and packed with great, practical information for anyone who would like be a darker shade of green. Sara's own story and upbringing is inspiration enough and certainly will be welcomed by holistic mamas everywhere who hope that their children will embrace a healthy lifestyle in adulthood. Sara is a testament to just such hope and a passion for green living was clearly cultivated over her lifetime.

Taking you on a journey through your home, Sara provides not only simple steps you can take today but also a solid explanation as to why such change matters. From optimizing your refrigerator's energy use to seeking out low-pesticide produce, transforming your kitchen into a green haven is a wonderful first step. Then it's on to tackling the bathroom, the bedroom (even including tips on greening your intimate life), the living room, and beyond. While this is a broad and basic guide for living green, there is something for even green living pros to learn in more detailed sections describing food labeling, rainwater harvesting, or socially responsible investing.

Living a green life is a journey for most of us and we take it one step at a time. Sara Snow's Fresh Living allows us the space to make these incremental changes and provides us with helpful guidance along the way. Kudos for such a practical, hands-on guide from one of our favorite green experts!


  1. I was pleased to see your recommendation of socially responsible investing.

    I believe that when we invest in a company, or many companies in the case of a mutual fund, we share in the responsibility for the activities of those companies as well as participate in the outcomes of their corporate activities. So, anyone valuing their personal or spiritual growth has to take these things into account when investing.

    Also, if everyone invests according to their personal values, then, since so many of our core values are alike — and are supportive of higher ideals — that in the long run, only companies employing these higher values will truly prosper. And there is real evidence of this now.

    I advocate, teach, and write on the subject of personal values based investing -- and have a popular website that has unique information which might interest you. It includes the latest global socially responsible investing news and research. My site is at

    Best wishes, Ron Robins
