Most eco-friendly books start with terror-inducing lists of the carcinogenic chemicals you are liberally slathering all over every single surface in your house, painting most people as unwitting eco-villains, happily Lysol-ing their way straight to hell. Well, listeners can just relax and unpack the (plastic) bags - no guilt trips today!
All You Need Is Less is about realistically adopting an eco-friendly lifestyle without either losing your mind from soul-destroying guilt or becoming a preachy know-it-all whom everyone loathes. It's all gotten kind of complicated, hasn't it?
This whole eco-friendly thing seems to have devolved into a horrific cycle of guilt, shaming, and one-upping, and as a result people are becoming exhausted. It doesn't have to be this way. It is possible to take baby steps toward a more Earth-friendly lifestyle without stress, guilt, or judgmental eco-shaming.
Top eco-blogger Madeleine Somerville is here with really original ideas on how to save money and the planet. Her ideas are even fun! Somerville has emerged as the voice of reason on urban homesteading that is stress-free, sanity-based, and above all - do-able.
If you are looking forward to meet a great girl living as ecofriendly as posible in the most simple and happy way, you should listen to this book. Madeleine will give you great ideas and a sustainable panorama of how we are supposed to live in order to give this beautiful world and future generations what they deserve. I'm ready to join her eco-living style, are you? You will never regret it, it was never this easy (and cheap)!!

This story is great, I had no complaints there. it's full of tips and tricks to lead a more minimal or healthy lifestyle. I absolutely LOVE the narrator and will purchase more books just to listen to her fun, energetic take on books. Just one suggestion, if you're looking for the audio version, get the print too. there are so many great recipes to try to help you save money AND the planet but now I have to write them all down. that Stinks because I'm one of the lazy ones. so just get it on your kindle too. save yourself the time.
This audio book has good ideas, fun humor, and superfluous foul language in that order.
