From Publishers' Weekly:

Among a sea of new books on "living green," this breezy, fun-to-read guide for eco-conscious Sex-and-the-City types sets itself apart with a supportive, winning voice that's long on common sense and well-sourced info; even better, upscale lifestyle writer Matheson promises from the get-go that "you can definitely be green without giving up everything you love." As such, she offers valuable tips on finding high-style, high-quality replacements for eco-toxic products, services and indulgences of all kinds-domestics, food and drink, cosmetics, transportation, parties-that won't harm the earth or the body. Elsewhere, she provides familiar small steps-use fewer plastics, buy organic cotton clothes, walk more and drive less-but does encourage the big steps too ("Get rid of your car-if you can"). She also informs readers in clear language exactly why it's important to seek out, say, organic wine or a pedicure that eschews chemicals in favor of "scrubs and lotions that [you] would use at home." Though she dishes some cold, hard facts about the impact everyday choices makes, it's Matheson's level-headed, positive attitude and easy-to-implement tips that will inspire the young, hip and easily distracted to take up the cause.
