GREEN Book Club

These are suggested books from IdealBite.

I will be checking them out!!

  • Natural Capitalism by Paul Hawken, Amory Lovins & L. Hunter Lovins - tip top on the Biter syllabus and a well-written read, the co-founder of Smith & Hawken and friends lay out how companies can do well by doing good ($13).
  • The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan - you are what you eat - and if you're American, apparently you are corn. Or so says a NY Times columnist in this groundbreaking look at how we eat ($17).
  • Cradle to Cradle by Michael Braungart & William McDonough - how do edible grocery bags sound? Explorations in waste reduction, laid out with style and sass ($16).
  • Crimes Against Nature by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. - RFK Jr. explains how the US government could destroy - or save - the environment ($15).
  • Plan B 2.0 by Lester R. Brown - on all of our nightstands and we're planning to read it as soon as we actually get back to our own bedrooms since we've been traveling so much lately ($12).
  • Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser - this exposé on the sustainability (or lack thereof) of our fast food nation is also coming soon to theaters ($11).
  • Stop Global Warming by Laurie David - rockin' guide to saving the world, from an avid Biter ($10).
  • Blue Marble - click on Library - this socially responsible investment firm will actually lend you some of these books if you can't get 'em at your own library branch.
