Unless otherwise stated, I’ve personally read and approve of all the books on this list. Seeing as how you most likely have different taste in books than me, you may want to check your local library before you buy though.
Main Street Vegan: Everything You Need to Know to Eat Healthfully and Live Compassionately in the Real World: The best vegan help guide I’ve ever read. Not preachy, not long-winded. Just about perfect with some cool recipes included too.
Stoneview: How to Build an Eco-Friendly Little Guesthouse – I’m not building a guesthouse anytime soon, but the idea is delightful.
Eco-Chic Weddings: Simple Tips to Plan an Earth-Friendly, Socially Responsible, Affordable Green Wedding: An excellent little green wedding book for more eco-minded couples. Read my review.
Green Guide Families: The Complete Reference for Eco-Friendly Parents: A must have book for green families covering life from birth on up. Read my review.
Generation Green: The Ultimate Teen Guide to Living an Eco-Friendly Life: A decent book covering the basics. I’m not a huge fan of books geared right at a specific age-group, because frankly green living skills run across the ages, but if you’re looking for an age-specific read, this is the best green teen book I’ve seen thus yet.
The Eco-nomical Baby Guide: Down-to-Earth Ways for Parents to Save Money and the Planet: Everyone having a baby now or sometime soon, needs this book. It’s utterly excellent and budget-minded. Read my review.
The Adventures of a Plastic Bottle: A Story About Recycling (Little Green Books): This book I have not read, but it looks adorable, so I thought I’d add it to the list this month.
Naturally Clean: The Seventh Generation Guide to Safe & Healthy, Non-Toxic Cleaning: This book, though written by Seventh Generation, is not a plug for their products, as you might think it would be. It’s actually useful for all green cleaners, even if you never use 7th gen. In fact, I lent my copy to my friend and she’s using it for her green home cleaning business as we speak.
The New 50 Simple Things Kids Can Do to Save the Earth: The best book for kiddos about green living I’ve read. Includes real input from real kids. Note, this book is well-suited for elementary and maybe middle school kids, but too young for teens IMO.
Good Green Homes: Creating Better Homes for a Healthier Planet: Hands down my favorite green home book. Pretty, eco and very fun to look at (and read).
