Living Like Ed review

Oh how I love green living books. Anything that can teach me how to live a more eco-friendly life AND be interesting to read is right up my alley and Ed Begley Jr. has put out a fantastic book (and a great tv series) all based around living green.

Living Like Ed: A Guide to Eco-Friendly Living has a great balance between tips on how to actually incorporate simple steps into your daily life, with commentary from Ed and his eco-reluctant wife, Rachelle, making it pretty funny, as well as educational. From the simple, like using rain barrels as water catchers, composting, and recycling, to the more complex, like installing solar panels, riding a bicycle to generate energy, and driving an electric car, Begley teaches us how to do it and expresses both pros and cons to each tip.

An easy, quick, and interesting read, I would recommend this one to anyone looking for some fun eco-tips or just to brush up on what you're already doing right.

I read this one for the Fill in the Gaps challenge.
