Starre Vartan is speaking in Hartford on Thursday at an event hosted by CT Green Scene. Starre is the author of the new book The Eco Chick Guide to Life: How to Be Fabulously Green and runs the website

In reviewing her book for Amazon, Meghan Meyers of Portovert - the leading green wedding magazine- wrote:

"This is, hands-down, the best green living guide I've read to-date. It is well-organized and approachable and filled with practical information for everyday living. You'll find budget-friendly tips to fix your home and easy-to-digest explanations of today's hot topics (i.e hybrid vs. PZEV vs. electric vehicles vs. fuel cells). I LOVE THIS BOOK. This is the first and last book you'll need to help you understand the eco issues facing us today."

Sounds great!

Flowers for the Table

I rarely rave about flower books but I am so impressed with this one I felt compelled to include it in the reading room. If you are thinking of doing your own flowers or are looking for seasonal inspiration pick up a copy of Flowers for the Table: Arrangements and Bouquets for All Seasons.

Ariella Chezar is a master arranger, and incorporats fruit, vines and many unexpected items into her magnificent floral arrangements. If you want sustainable wedding flowers with an organic feel this is the book for you.

NEW UK Green Wedding Book

I just got wind of a new green wedding book coming out in August in the UK - How To Get Married In Green. For those of you reading this on the other side of the puddle - hopefully Suzan will have lots of local tips to share!

Interested in Biodiesel?

Here is a new book about how biodiesel can help us fight global warming.

From thir website:

"Let's set things straight!

In America, we use gasoline in our cars primarily, but diesel engines drive all of our service vehicles from school buses to garbage trucks, construction equipment, marine, planes, trains and hundreds of thousands of semi's shipping food and goods each day. Thats alot of pertroleum, and alot of pollution!
Biodiesel is petroleum FREE, and will double the life of an engine and reduce carbon emmissions by 78%!

And biodiesel can be produced in abundance, close to home, without harming our food crops or precious rainforest!"

You can download this book as an MP3 too - which has even less impact on the environment. Click the image below to learn more.

Green Business Reads

Yesterday a reader suggested that I include a couple of good green business book suggestions. One book that has gotten a lot of attention is Green to Gold.

Dan Esty (one of the co-authors) is the only faculty member at Yale who is a joint professor with the Forestry School and Yale Law School. He is the Director of the Yale Center for Environmental Law and Policy as well as the Yale World Fellows Program.

"Every business, big or small, in manufacturing or services, faces environmental risks and opportunities. Esty and Winston show how companies have benefited from taking these challenges as strategic opportunities, but they also detail why corporate environmental initiatives often fall flat. There are important lessons to be learned from both the successes and the failures."-Bertrand Collomb, Chairman, Lafarge (Bertrand Collomb )

The other book that was recommended to me is Green Business: A Five-part Model for Creating an Environmentally Responsible Company.

As one reviewer wrote:

This is a large-format, coffee-table book that makes a colorful and enjoyable introduction to the basic elements of enhancing sustainability for any type of business. It is written at a more basic level and is successful in giving a broad overview of the range of typical sustainbility practices:
+ Greening your mission
+ Greening your employees
+ Greening your operations
+ Greening your facilities/sites
+ Greening your products/service

Natural Cleaning

Having just added a number of non-toxic cleaning supplies to the look book, I thought it would be helpful to add a book on natural cleaning. In addition to the "over-the-counter" or pre-made cleaning supplies I highlight in the look book you can also make a number of effective natural home cleaners using everyday items (like vinegar). A great book on this topic is Nontoxic, Natural & Earthwise. For a more modern take try Green Up Your Cleanup.

While I am promoting cleaning books, I have to add my fathers personal bible. While it is not a specifically non-toxic book, it has effective cleaning solutions for almost every common problem. Based on this book, my father has developed a reputation among friends and family members as "the stain master." Now his secrets are revealed.

Volunteer Vacations

Although not for everyone, more and more couples are taking volunteer honeymoons. Even if you are not interested in going on a volunteer trip for your wedding, you might be interested in taking a volunteer vacation at some point in the next few years. If so - I recommend checking out some of the amazing opportunities recommended in "Volunteer Vacations: Short-Term Adventures That Will Benefit You and Others."

Green Chic: Saving the Earth in Style

Christie Matheson, the author of Green Chic, is a veteran writer. Her work has appeared in Body & Soul, Glamour, Shape, Boston, San Francisco, Yoga Journal, and The Boston Globe Magazine. She is also the author of four books (listed below) and an accomplished photographer.

in Green Chic, Christie offers fun practical tips for living a greener life. As the author of Garbage Land: On the Secret Trail of Trash, Elizabeth Royte, wrote: "Matheson slyly steers us toward consumer goods and services that minimize our earth-stomping human footprint. She's brave enough to say 'buy less of everything,' and even the politically fraught 'buy nothing.' Matheson's genius is to make this seem not only doable, but fun."

This is a great book to buy for yourself or as a gift for a friend.

Check out Christie's other books:

The Busy Brides Essential Wedding Checklists

Name Change Kit

Many people (men and women) today change their names when they get married. Whether one or both of you is making a change, you will quickly discover it is a royal "pain in the patoot," as my mother would say. It can also be time consuming and costly. Newlyweds run into the most trouble when they try to use an old passport and a new name on their honeymoon - but there are many documents that need updating (like your social security card) that can easily slip your mind or fall off the bottom of your to do list.

When I got married I decided, for a number of reasons that I will not go into here, to take my husband's last name but to retain my maiden name, Harrison, for work. When six months had passed and I had made very little headway, I ordered The Ultimate Name Change Kit and was very pleased with the package. It is green because it saves you hours of thinking and internet surfing, is available as a PDF download and is tailored to your state. In addition to providing all the forms you need it also gives you a complete check list of all of the people and places you will need to contact about the switch as well as a step by step guide with very helpful tips (like make 10 copies of your marriage license right off the bat).

You can click on the image above to order your kit today.

Green Investing

We can all see which way the winds of the economy are blowing and the time to invest in renewable energy has arrived. If you want a basic primer on investment tools and green options I recommend Socially Responsible Investing, by Ami Domini. If you are more interested in green stocks - try Green Investing.

Anti-Bride Guides

One reader who bought the Offbeat Bride recommends another "alternative wedding" book - the Anti-Bride Guide:

"Into a sea of pearl white and pale blue comes the hot pink and orange Anti-Bride Guide. The perfect book for anyone alienated by the high-brow wedding industry, this practical guide fills a huge gap in the wedding planner market. A riot to read and filled with sassy illustrations, each chapter offers up fabulous advice and unusual ideas for those brides looking for more than the standard fare. Hundreds of fantastic tips give great insider advice on how to deal with any and all wedding eventualities (lipstick stain on dress, caterer from hell, wedding day breakout). A handy planner and resource guide keeps the bride on track, and tabbed chapters have pockets for stuffing brochures and clippings. For the bride who wants her wedding her way, this is the ultimate guide. " - Amazon

Now the Anti-Bride Guide has additional books to cover every aspect of the big day.

This book as gotten excellent reviews. It was written by journalist and former chef Cindy Burke. She distills some of the politics of the organic food movement and reviews key terms like organic, local, sustainable and grass-fed. She also tells you what to buy and what not to buy. Good for those of us who like answers.

Red Sky at Morning by Gus Speth

This book, written by the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies' dean Gus Speath is a roadmap for global action on climate change. As one Amazon review wrote:

"This book deserves ten stars. It is more important than the sacrosanct Silent Spring. It is impossible to overstate this book's importance."

I have bought this book for several friends - it is easy to read and has lots of practical advice for expecting and seasoned mothers alike. If you or the person you are thinking of buying this book for are also interested in making your own baby food - I recommend the The Petit Appetit Cookbook by Lisa Barnes.

Kosher Cooking

If you want to have a kosher wedding reception and you are thinking about cooking some of the food yourself, or just want ideas to give your caterer, consider picking up one of the following contemporary kosher cookbooks.

1. Kosher By Design Entertains: Fabulous Recipes For Parties And Every Day
"Building on her popular Kosher by Design, Fishbein leads readers through an array of extremely doable kosher options, covering finger foods to main dishes to desserts, while giving suggestions for organizing a menu, decorating a table and serving foods. International offerings like Pesce Arrabbiatta, Moroccan Short Ribs, and Caribbean Jerk Chicken appear alongside variations on familiar classics, such as Mexican Gefilte Fish, Strawberry Apple Kugel, and Mexican Brisket. The author is hip to trendy food items such as edamame, olive tapenade, fennel and porcini mushrooms, reinforcing this cookbook's value: yes, every dish is kosher, but far from old-fashioned. "

2. Quick & Kosher - Recipes From The Bride Who Knew Nothing
"This is the hilarious story of Jamie Geller, a spunky young TV exec who came into marriage and kosher cooking without knowing a spatula from a saucepan. Determined to master cooking, yet pressed for time, she was dismayed to find that most cookbooks consider an hour of preparation time quick, and presumed more culinary skill than many of us have. So Jamie set out to compile her own special collection of quick and easy recipes and Quick & Kosher is the result of her quest. This one-of-a-kind cookbook contains more than 160 recipes requiring no more than 15 minutes to prepare, 120 full-color photos, clear step-by-step instructions, reliable prep and cooking times, tips and techniques, and advice on pairing wines with various dishes. Recipes range from traditional to exotic, and are well indexed and cross-referenced."

3. Hip Kosher: 175 Easy-to-Prepare Recipes for Today's Kosher Cooks
"This book is a great find - from fun recipes filled with loads of learning made easy. I look forward to flipping through the pages and finding a new recipe to try - they've all been hits with our friends so far. Easy to follow - definitely well tested - and they all paste the taste test of top notch food! Thank you, Ms. Ronnie Fein, for bringing this book to us!" - AS.R. Crow

A Greener Apple

Okay - so electronics probably aren't the first thing you think of when you think "green," but that does not stop us from buying them. Therefore, I thought you might be interested to know about some of the things one of the greener electronic companies are doing. Click here to read about how Apple is leading the way.

If you are looking for a new phone, Blackberry or iPod, consider getting an all-in-one iPhone and reduce the number of devices you need...

Or be even greener and buy refurbished (aka recycled) products...

Apple Online Store

Remember, when your old electronics break don't throw them away! Google your state's name and the words "e-waste recycling" or "cell phone recycling" etc. to find local drop off points for everything form microwaves to old televisions.

Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser

I loved this book. Well researched and compellingly written, Schlosser does a very good job of explaining why our food system is the way it is - and why Americans are so overweight as a result. I would not say it is a beach read, but it is probably as close as a non-fiction book about food can get and still be powerful.

A few quick reviews:

Atlanta Journal Constitution
"'Fast Food Nation' should be another wake-up call, a super-size serving of common sense...."

The New York Times
"...Schlosser is a serious and diligent reporter..." "[Fast Food Nation] is a fine piece of muckraking, alarming without beling alarmist." - Rob Walker, NYTBR 1/21/01

Publishers Weekly, Starred
"Schlosser establishes a seminal argument for the true wrongs at the core of modern America."

If you prefer movies, or just want to add some visuals to the mix and have not seen Supersize Me - it is must see TV.

Paper Flower Books

After seeing the entry on How to Make Flowers with Dennison Crepe Paper, one reader suggested a few other paper flower books which I am happy to share:

Fanciful Paper Flowers: Creative Techniques for Crafting an Enchanted Garden

From amazon:
Eleven different paper flower-making techniques, three projects for each, all developed by a proven author with an enchanting, whimsical, flea-market-meets-fantasy sensibility: that’s what makes this volume so irresistible. Sandra Evertson follows up her Fanciful Paper Projects with a fabulously feminine collection of paper flower jewelry, garlands, barrettes, hatpins, ornaments, and decorative objects ... Each chapter features a page from her very own sketchbook, plus she’s provided several pages of vintage ephemera, templates, and her original papers for readers to copy and use... this collection truly offers a garden of artistic possibilities!

Paper Bouquet: Using Paper Punches to Create Beautiful Flowers

From Amazon:
Cherry blossoms, forsythia, marigolds, and petunias: Who would have imagined you could recreate such gorgeous blooms with just paper and craft punches? ... Using her own original, unique techniques, Susan Tierney Cockburn offers 40 beloved flowers to make for decorating gifts and home décor. She teaches the simple basics, including paper manipulation, gluing, and coloring, and presents her flowers as colorfully as they’re found in nature. From A (Amaryllis) to Z (Zinnia), there’s a bountiful bouquet of blooms to choose from! Photographs document every step, and a visual template of the punches accompanies each flower. A dozen sample projects range from picture frames to wreaths.

I also recently came across Origami Flowers: Popular Blossoms and Creative Bouquets which looks fantastic!

You can do these projects with leftover and recycled paper from your house or use colorful origami paper made from rice (link available on the DIY page of the look book).

Happy crafting!

How to Have a Freegan Wedding - Meghan Meyers

One of the things I talk about in my book is the myth that green weddings cost more than conventional weddings - they can actually cost less. In fact - according to Meghan Meyers, of Portovert, you can now have a wedding that costs almost nothing. She just posted two articles on how to have a freegan wedding (without going into the dumpster per se). Check them out!

Not Just a Pretty Face: The Ugly Side of the Beauty Industry by Stacy Malkan

Stacy Malkan is speaking at Yale tonight to read from her new book "Not Just a Pretty Face." It looks like an informative and timely read:

From Amazon:
Product Description
Lead in lipstick? 1,4 dioxane in baby soap? Coal tar in shampoo? How is this possible? Simple. The $35 billion cosmetics industry is so powerful they’ve kept themselves unregulated for decades. Not Just a Pretty Face chronicles the quest that led a group of health and environmental activists to the world’s largest cosmetics companies to ask some tough questions:

Why do companies market themselves as pink ribbon leaders in the fight against breast cancer, yet use hormone-disrupting and carcinogenic chemicals that may contribute to that very disease?
Why do products used by men and women of childbearing age contain chemicals linked to birth defects and infertility?
As doors slammed in their faces and the beauty myth peeled away, the industry’s toxic secrets began to emerge. This scathing investigation peels away less-than-lovely layers to expose an industry in dire need of an extreme makeover. The good news is that while the major multinational companies fight for their right to use hazardous chemicals, entrepreneurs are developing safer non-toxic technologies and building businesses on the values of health, justice and personal empowerment.

About the Author
Stacy Malkan is Communications Director of Health Care Without Harm and media strategist for the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, a national coalition working to eliminate hazardous chemicals from personal care products. Stacy is a former journalist and newspaper publisher who lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The Tofu Tollbooth - by Elizabeth Zipern + Dar Williams

The Tofu Tollbooth is considered a bible for vegetarian and vegan travel. It lists restaurants, health food stores and other naturally inclined venues by state:

"The guide contains more than 1,000 health-food options, and for each site, the concise write-ups contain address and phone number, directions from the highways (a wonderful addition), hours of operation, and the parade of cute icons that let you know what to expect to find there (once you memorize that the face with beret stands for café, the carrot in a glass denotes juice bar, and the hot pepper means an especially hot tip)." -

This book is not only good for road trips - it can also help you find sources of natural food for your wedding!

If you like folk music and do not own any of Dar Williams albums I also highly recommend checking out some of her CDs:

You can also download her music directly from iTunes
