There has been a flood of attention given to the small actions we can take to live in a more environmentally friendly way--from reducing water use to conserving electricity. Building an eco-responsible lifestyle is a great first step, but to effect real change in the world we must learn how to look beyond our own lives and connect to the larger issues. In this unique book, Stephanie Kaza makes that big-picture connection for us. Influenced by her background in Buddhism, she offers a simple philosophy for engaging in environmental action in real, practical, and effective ways. Readers will find new methods to evaluate their own relationship to the environment, think more deeply about their impact on the natural world, engage in environmental change, and make living green a personal practice that comes from compassion and true conviction.--From publisher description.
