Sleeping Naked Is Green: How an Eco-Cynic Unplugged Her Fridge, Sold Her Car, and Found Love in 366 Days by Vanessa farquharson
This author has a wonderful sense of humor! Her challenge (to herself) to go green for a year doing one new "green" thing a day and blog about it. Not all her choices are all that green. Some of her choices are intensely green. Rather surprisingly she isn't being green one hundred percent of the time. She cheats frequently & her friends say, "Don't worry. I wont tell."
The pitfalls and benefits of some of her green choices can be pretty hilarious! I loved reading her newbie opinion on all the various options for saving the planet. Many preach about how to be better to Mother Earth, but who is actually doing it & enjoying it for that matter?
What makes her adventure in green all that more entertaining is that I am already living as self sufficiently as I reasonably can, which also means I'm also living as close to the land as possible.
I thought that this would be a day by day break down of what she does. Close, but no. The book is sectioned into months. The beginning of each months section lists on the first page what new green thing she did on each day. Then you dive into that months adventures broken down by the day. Sometimes skipping several days. Therefore you don't get to read about every single green experience she had. I can only guess that those experiences weren't particularly entertaining, so she spared her readers. Then again, she may have cheated on those days!
I'm not sure that someone who isn't interested in the save the earth mindset would like this book. However, if you are considering going green, are already working at it, maybe need a nudge, or perhaps some new ideas you will probably enjoy this book as much as I did!
