Nikki Fotheringham started the website GreenMoxie to allow readers to see how easy an environmentally friendly outlook can be.
Nikki’s mission is simple: do one green thing a month. As she says in her book, “Sometimes these changes are big, like giving up my car, and sometimes they’re small, like putting a recycling bin in my kitchen.” Her new short manual shows you don’t have to be a hippie and own a goat to have fun while you make a difference.
The title is apt, as her short descriptions make green living sound as fun as following through on a Pinterest craft (without the high failure rate). Each section is broken up into an area of your home: The Living Room, Love Your Loo, Household Maintenance, etc.
The ideas are super cool and so easy that her instructions often have five points or fewer. Sure, you got the “turn off the lights” memo, but did you consider making your own yogurt? Or popping celery into water to grow more and save on your grocery bill?
Even if you only take away a few of Nikki’s ideas, you will undoubtedly be inspired to be a laundry detergent making, carbon offsetting kind of person. Her tone is chatty and non-judgmental. She reminds you of the teacher you had as a kid who was so cool that you wanted to do well and be noticed. Pick me! Pick me!
Few books have a mission to make you better in less than 150 pages. It’s a minor commitment for a book that could not only change your month, but also your outlook.
