Wearing Smaller Shoes
Living Light on the Big Blue Marble
This is not about ripping out all offending objects in your house in one afternoon and upgrading with the latest in high-tech green toys. The author outlines how he and his wife first began making small changes around the house to save electricity. They cut their power bill in half. Then they moved to recycling and brought their garbage down to almost nothing. Haynes walks the reader through every low-impact, low-tech solution-from power to recycling to shopping to transportation-with the important distinction that it won't cost you more than you save. You can live light and go green the easy way, within your budget and stress-free. You really can.
Wearing Smaller Shoes is all about making small changes over time, and staying comfortable with everything you do. It's about going green without having to brag about it. (But you could if you wanted to.)
Chip Haynes has been a year-round commuter for a decade, and owns too many bicycles. He writes about bicycling for The Wire Donkey and is known as "the neighborhood bike guy" in Clearwater, Florida.
