This Mother’s Day, why not give mom what she really wants? Money and influence! She can have more of both with the new book Green, American Style, just released from Baker Books. Author and mother Anna M. Clark gives moms a valuable tool to help them model environmental stewardship behaviors for their children. Readers can benefit by applying easy money-saving principles at home and work, even at school and church. Better health for families and more close-knit communities are several of many other reasons Clark offers to those who embrace eco-friendly living.
In Green, American Style: Becoming Earth-Friendly and Reaping the Benefits (978-0-8010-1334-8, $14.99, April 2010), Clark details the benefits of living the green life. “It’s about gaining more money, time, opportunity, health and well-being,” says Clark. “It’s also about preserving the health and future of our kids. People have no idea that what they don’t know can hurt them. The principles and ideas in my book can help parents protect their children from the toxins in our food, air and water.” But make no mistake, this is also about fun. “I’ve included chapters on green games, green home remodeling, and green shopping. I definitely want people to enjoy themselves while making a difference!”
Green, American Style is a guide to going green and loving it. It’s uniquely American perspective speaks into readers’ own paradigms, taking into account the largely conservative values of much of this country, its democratic and capitalistic history, its emphasis on family and its resistance to reining in. It is more than a list of ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle. It’s a movement that accounts for the diverse perspectives of business, faith, and lifestyle, recognizing the economic, physical, and spiritual benefits of sustainable living.
Anna M. Clark is president of EarthPeople and an author on topics of green living, leadership and sustainability. Clark, her husband, and two preschoolers live in Dallas in one of Texas’ first residences to earn a Platinum LEED-certified rating from the U.S. Green Building Council.
