Format: Paperback
Want to help save the planet one simple step at a time? Adria Vasil's highly entertaining and informative ECOHOLIC will supply all the tips you could possibly need. Her informal and often humorous approach to some pretty grim facts about the amount of toxins we're wearing, inhaling, and decorating our homes with (and this is only a fraction of the big picture she presents) is enough to make one want to stay in bed, except that most bedding is chemically saturated. Adria demonstrates how everything we buy, consume, and excrete, effects our planet's increasingly fragile ecosystem. But she also offers practical solutions to coping with our toxic environment.

Although I've been recycling for years and shop as little as possible, I'm not a staunch environmentalist. Yet, this book made me realize there's many more eco-friendly things I can do. While plenty of information is given, Adria also provides many useful websites for further information, though how many of these websites will be around three years from now is anyone's guess. Still, given the growing concern for our planet, there will always good information somewhere on the Net. Do yourself and your children a huge favour. Buy the book, try some of those tips, and help make this planet a little better.

Vasil has created a comprehensive guide to living in more environmentally friendly, sustainable, and healthy ways. Her style is clear and entertaining, with just a tad of (very appropriate) preachiness. Every Canadian household should have a copy of this book. And the fact that the book itself is forest-friendly—-vegetable inks “Printed on 100% Post-Consumer Paper” from a biogas powered mill, bound with recycled glue—-is consistent with its message.

This book is a must read for every Canadian household.

Without being preaching, it offers countless tips on how you can live a healthier lifestyle while having less of an impact on planet Earth.

The book is organized in practical themes which allow for a reading by clusters, as well as going back to a certain chapter before heading for a shopping trip... it will allow you to make an informed decision as a consumer.

The writing style is witty, there is a good use of textboxes...

One of the best books I have ever put my hands on.

Format: Paperback
This is an amazing resource/reference book. Well written with a hint of humor! The book was published in 2007 so I'm a couple years late and I was worried that a lot of the websites mentioned or products/info might be outdated or irrelevant now but that was not the case! This book is definitely still relevant to today and a must have for all ecoholic Canadians and really, ALL Canadians in general. It's definitely a book that can be referred back to again and again. It can be a bit overwhelming at times since there is a lot of information covered and it's rather scary to think of all these chemicals lurking in our favourite products but I think it's something we should all be informed about so we can all start making cleaner, greener changes in our lifestyles. <3
