All You Need is Less by Madeleine Somerville

Green living is not something you buy. It is something you do.

The Edmonton Journal recently interviewed Madeleine Somerville, author of All You Need is Less (Viva Editions), on her decision to stop using commercial shampoos.

"'I’m not a biochemist or a super hard-core environmentalist,' Somerville says. But a few years back, she saw her giant English mastiff, Gus, licking the kitchen floors after she had cleaned them with a fluorescent yellow cleaning product. The bottle had toxic warning labels," wrote the Edmonton Journal.

“I was getting frustrated (before) that ‘being green’ only seemed something you could do if you had tons of money and tons of time,” Somerville says. “I wanted to get away from that philosophy. Green living is not something you buy. It is something you do.”
