RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 262426484 LA English T1 Sleeping naked is green : how an eco-cynic unplugged her fridge, sold her car, and found love in 366 days A1 Farquharson, Vanessa., PB Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Pub. Co. PP Boston YR 2009 SN 9780547073286 0547073283 AB Canadian journalist Farquharson takes readers on her 366-day journey to live a more environmentally conscious lifestyle, making one positive change each day. While a few changes are worthy (the author sells her car), some seem a bit bizarre (she turns off her fridge and freezer?though she doesn't divulge exactly where her food is coming from after that point) and many are superficial or symbolic efforts rather than well thought out and executed commitments. In her first month, for example, she pledges to check her tire pressure and opt for natural glass cleaners, while three months later she's promising to fill the kettle with exact amount of water needed, recycle her wine corks and forgo Q-tips. While the details of her environmental crusade can weary, her griping about the efficacy of chemical-free shampoos and deodorants and the ugliness of sustainable footwear is fresh and funny; in these moments, Farquharson's appealing candor and nonsanctimonious attitude make other ecowarriors seem dour by comparison.
