I'm Not Lazy

I'm not lazy, I just want to enjoy an easy, stylish and green life at my own pace. Well, Josh Dorfman has pulled it all together for me (and you) to do so! His book,
The Lazy Environmentalist~Your Guide to Easy, Stylish, Green Living.

Book Description:
We can’t all camp out in old-growth forests, lying down in front of the bulldozers. And it’s not only that we’re too busy: Some of us just don’t want our fabulous threads to get caked with mud.

But that doesn’t mean we don’t care passionately about the environment. Luckily, the days when becoming environmentally aware entailed eating bread that tasted like dirt, wearing clothes that looked like frayed burlap sacks, and spending summer vacations assailing whaling ships with Greenpeace are passing away. It is now perfectly possible (and increasingly easy) to be well fed, well coiffed, well dressed, and well traveled while remaining deeply committed to an ecologically sustainable lifestyle.

In The Lazy Environmentalist, Josh Dorfman—host of the Sirius Satellite Radio program of the same name—provides comprehensive guidance to fashion-forward consumers who are as concerned about the long-term health of our planet as they are about the design of their bathroom fixtures. Covering topics that range from clothing to electronic gadgetry, home decor to recreation, and gardening to financial investment, Dorfman lets us know which trends to watch and which eco-conscious products—cars, toothbrushes, cell phones, pet accessories—to buy. Green, it turns out, can be an extremely stylish color.

Is He?

Have you ever tried an Izze? Recently I tried Izze's Sparkling Pomegranat drink and whew-we, is it ever good! It can so replace my craving for sweets (and sometimes soda). This caffeine-free, naturally sweetened treat uses real fruit juice to add that skip in your step, rather than refined sugar that does things you really don't want happening to your body.

Izze partners with Global Education Fund for Project Reach, a program that provides education-based development for farm workers and their families in the communities where they buy their fruit, check out I also like their clear glass bottles (better for the environment) and simple label design. Way to go Izze! You're my new favorite soda.
