  • The Greening of Gavin - My First Year of Living Sustainably on June 26, 2012

    What a terrific little book! I've been a devoted reader of the author's blog for a couple years now, but it's nice to have his "greening" process laid out step-by-step, all in one publication. When a blogger is as prolific as Gavin is, it can be hard to piece it all together from blog posts done over several years' time. I particularly enjoyed the "what I'd do differently" review of each chapter's topic. As we all know, hindsight is 20/20 and this feature gives us the benefit of Gavin's learning curve. It's easy to get lost in the green-washing propaganda put out by our corporate overlords, but Gavin's book clearly lays out concrete actions that almost anyone can take to achieve measurable benefits for themselves, their families and the planet. It's nice to see that a bit of celebrity has come Gavin's way as well, as his story has gotten a fair bit of press and has likely inspired others to follow in his footsteps. Nice job! I look forward to reading Gavin's future works.
