Readers, hold on to your seats - this giveaway rocks!
I've already talked to you about Big Green Purse, the awesome book and website that talks about how women spend (or have influence over) 85% of every dollar spent in the marketplace. That's power. And Big Green Purse tells us how we should use that power to send a message. The message is: we are only interested in buying products that are healthy, sustainable, and good for us and for the planet. Manufacturers are resistant to laws forcing them to become sustainable, but they will always listen to the power of what's selling in the marketplace, and it is with our Big Green Purses that we will tell them exactly what kind of products we will - and won't - spend our money on.
The book is hefty (excellent for chucking at the heads of eco-jerks), printed on 100% recycled paper, and is chock filled with tips on how to spend your money greenily and wisely. This book is an excellent resource for anyone who is looking to change their lifestyle and their spending. You'll learn:
• how to become a savvy green consumer — or not consume at all
• twenty-five key commodity areas where your dollars can have the biggest environmental impact
• standards you can use to choose the greenest option, no matter what you buy
• how to prioritize your green spending, clarifying what’s worth the premium price some green products cost, and what isn’t
• specific companies in each category you can support (and some you should avoid).
So here's the best part: ecochick has five (that's right, 5) copies to give away to readers. Simply comment on this post by Friday, May 30th, telling me one of the Green Shopping Principles found on the Big Green Purse website. They're easy to find, trust me!
I'll post the names of the book recipients on this post after May 30th, so don't forget to check back after that date to see if your name is posted - I'll need you to email me with your mailing address.
