The New Normal: An Agenda for Responsible Living

by Gloria Rzucidlo
gloria1025@yahoo.com

 

The new "normal" refers to living in this new age. It puts responsibility of taking care of our health and this planet in ourselves. Instead of being susceptible to wasting and using synthetic products, why not use chemical-free and natural products? Why don't we buy locally instead of products that needs to be shipped to our towns, thus wasting gas in the trucks?

Let's plant more trees to prevent global warming; use water from the tap instead of bottled water which trashes our planet. Some people in the world don't even have access to clean water, yet we take our water for granted.

In this book, healthy families, communities and ecosystems are the measure of success. The author, David Wann, gives us ideas on how to maintain a sustainable lifestyle without spending a whole lot of money. He calls it "stretching the budget and shrinking the footprint."

It all boils down to a behavior change. If we replace our current habits to more efficient, healthy and more sensible way of living, we can lead more joyful, responsible and less stressful lives. We can build a new civilization that will preserve our world for generations to come.

I enjoyed this book, especially the energy saving and money saving ideas he gives to make us healthier and the planet more eco-friendly.
