Movies that I recommend

An Inconvenient Truth (Documentary)

The 11th Hour (Documentary) This fantastic documentary that had people from all fields talking about how we need to make a commitment to help save the ourselves. The movie very clearly points out that Earth will probably live on without us, but we are going to probably kill ourselves. I recommend that you watch this movie, but I do warn you it is depressing at the beginning… stick with it and you will be happy you did!!

Planet Earth – The Complete BBC Series (Documentary) Most visually beautiful movie/series I have ever seen. It shows the Earth in all of it’s beautiful ways and gives you a million more reasons to want to take care of it.

Books that I recommend:

Simply Organic: A Cookbook for Sustainable, Seasonal, and Local Ingredients the best cookbook for healthy sustainable eating.

An Inconvenient Truth: The Crisis of Global Warming Companion book to the movie, worth having in your libary if you are serious about fighting global warming.

The World Without Us A fascinating book that really shows Earth can easily live on with out humans. An absolutely wonderful and interesting read.

Fight Global Warming Now: The Handbook for Taking Action in Your Community A practical guide to community organizing to fight global warming. Gives practical examples of how to get the word out and get people to participate. Written by the grassroots organizers of Step It Up, a nationwide day of rallies that was organized in less than a year. This book will make you want to get up and get everyone you know to do something.

Living Like Ed: A Guide to the Eco-Friendly Life“>Living Like Ed: A Guide to Eco-Friendly Life by Ed Begley Jr. “Filled with sound advice and first-hand experience from someone who has been walking the walk for more than 38 years, Living Like Ed provides a wide array of practical options for anyone who wants to make his life a little-or a lot-greener. Ed Begley is more than a beloved Hollywood figure; he’s an all-American hero, and Living Like Ed is a comprehensive yet accessible guide to becoming more environmentally savvy that light greens and bright greens alike will find themselves dog-earing for years to come.”

  1. Hi – I came across your blog doing research for my blog called “What’s Green with Betsy”. We both have similar ideas and I am happy to see others are as concerned as I am. I am not a hippie type either, but a mother of 3 grown children. I have been leading an organic lifestyle since the 1970’s which I am happy to say is now much easier. Change is happening. I am located in the Boston area and am curious about where you are from. I think there are lots of us green bloggers out there, so hopefully we can make a difference. Good luck! Betsy Wild
