This feisty how-to is divided into ten easy-to-read sections including Home, Beauty, Baby and Pet, and delivers a straightforward approach to creating an effortlessly eco-friendly home. Madeleine Somerville shares recipes for all purpose cleaners, laundry detergent, simple meals and beauty fixes -plus a healing tea strong enough to cure even the worst Man Cold.
Novice hippies will love the simple, easy to follow tips and tricks, while the experienced eco-holics among us will appreciate the back-to- basics approach to living an environmentally conscious life. With an emphasis on reducing consumption, simplifying your life, and playfully poking fun at preachy environags (you know who you are), Somerville has created a deliciously green addition to any library.
About Madeleine Somerville
Madeleine is thirty years old and often finds herself wondering how in the world that happened, exactly.
She has a degree in Sociology with a concentration in Criminology, Deviance and Social control, and a baby tooth. She once spent three terrifying minutes with a 200lb albino python wrapped around her neck, and in 2009 her local paper ran an article shaming her for eating (and thoroughly enjoying) nachos from 7-11.
She has never gone skydiving or bungee jumping, and never will.
Madeleine lives in British Columbia, Canada, with her daughter, her dog, and her husband whom she once called ‘Couch Satan’.

This is her first book.
