Most eco friendly books start with Need Is ePUB #10003 terror inducing lists of the carcinogenic chemicals you are liberally slathering all over every single surface in your house painting most people as unwitting eco villains happily Lysol ing their way straight to hell Well readers can just relax and unpack the plastic bags no guilt trips today All You Need is Less is about realistically A. This review can be found on readingthethingnet Tao of the lazy environmentalistThis book is clearly based on a blog I didn t know this when I started reading but the way it was written with short chapters mostly filled with practical ways of living greener and the repeating of certain things like that you should reduce the stuff you have made that very clear This does make for very comfortable reading and a high density of information I got this book as an e galley but would consider getting it in print just so it s easier to use as a reference especially for all the recipes for cleaning materials in the early chapters of the book I am certainmy going to use some of thatI would ve liked if the book was made a bit bookish and a bit less bloggish like creating a theme without repeating itself Also I would have enjoyed it if she nagged at her husband less He is the butt of too many jokes And although playful banter between couples is fine it s a bit different if the banter is all you seeWhat I did enjoy was the focus on doing what you can and are comfortable with without being preachy although the recurring mentions that she was not being preachy felt a bit preachy I think this really is the way to go with greener living just step a tiny bit outside your comfort zone but without making it so uncomfortable you uit within a weekI had one point of critiue her endorsement of alternative medicine with the reasoning that she trusts in the placebo effect and that it can do no harm trying alternative stuff before going to a GP I really disagree with this sometimes alternative medicine does damage Also funding people who make money with bogus treatments even if you know it s bogus and if you have the money to spare that might lure others into spending money than they might have on things that will not cure them but they might not be aware of that is not ethical behaviour at allBut if you ignore that bit if woo and focus on the good advice she s giving this is a really useful little book I ll leave you with a uote that sums it all up nicely Reduce reuse recycle and choose to give out instead of giving up
