Gone are the days of boxy hemp shirts and gritty granola—cutting-edge innovation has made ecology as stylish and sexy as red carpet fashion, and everyday people are leading the charge with the choices they make in grocery stores, car lots, at work, in schools, and in their homes.

With roundtable discussions from inspiring leaders of the green movement, ECOrenaissance offers you eye-opening and groundbreaking resources to transform your life through supporting companies making significant, practical ecological change.

My Review - Thank you to Netgalley, Atria Books, and Marci Zaroff for the ARC!
This book is great for someone just getting started and wanting to make small changes to their lifestyle, but I admit that the ideas are a little outside of most-people’s comfort zone in terms of money. There’s a ton of economical changes you can make without spending an arm and a leg to do so.
However, it does offer a stylish feel with a touch of luxury that’s hard to find on on the cheap! Either way, I recommend it for anyone into sustainability and fashion, the more you learn….
