    One thought on “The Virtuous Consumer: Your Essential Shopping Guide for a Better, Kinder, Healthier World”

    1. I want to begin and say that I agree with the book's description - just like Festivus, it is definitely for the rest of us. I guess some fellows I personally like, such as Mark Boyle won't find it handy, but many others who struggle with consuming issues and eventually buy some stuff will find this book very useful.This is definitely not a guide that drives you to shop. No Sir! Garrett is well aware of the three R's (reduce, reuse, recycle) - for her this is a viable part of the choice to live c [...]

    2. I think that many of us believe that we are doing our part to preserve our world for our children and grandchildren. We happily recycle what we can. We donate our old clothes to good will. We enjoy local foods and even buy organic sometimes. The Virtuous Consumer shows the consumer that there is so much more that we could be doing. This book examines better options in every single consumer category from food and clothing through energy consumption and pesticide free gardening to adopting a pet a [...]

    3. The information in this book was great, so I wish the author had left it at that instead of adding all these (stupid parenthetical asides about her life.) (It's not supposed to be an autobiography). As it started to drone on I found the book repetitive and all in all the editing could have been much tighter. I also could have done without the author throwing feminism back by 100 years with comments like how she was too stupid to understand various things (because brains are, like, for boys! Tee [...]

    4. You have got to read this book! Garrett really breaks down the issues facing consumers today in topics ranging from cosmetics to children's gear, to pets and more. She has a great sense of humor and manages to give just the right amount of information. She lists all kinds of resources as well as many of her favorite products. Of course, we can't do it all, but just being aware of what we are bringing into our home environment and making little choices can really make a big difference

    5. Leslie Garrett brings to the forefront some of the main concerns of our ailing planet and ways we can help without preaching and fundamentalism. No matter how busy you are, this book gives you no reason not to take your stand in the healing of Mother Earth. There are simple techniques, lists of resources and ideas and so much more. This is a book that everyone in the US, if not world, should own. Blessings to Leslie for writing such a persuasive and sensible guide!

    6. Am I allowed to review my own book?? This book is, quite simply, a brilliant guide to making choices that are better for yourself and the planet. The author (me!) is perhaps a wee bit arrogantbut she really researched this book like crazy and desperately wants people to embrace the notion that living well and doing well go hand-in-hand.

    7. Although the book does provide some useful food for thought, I was really let down when I read the author's recommendation of clothing made from bamboo fabric. Her explanation was that because bamboo is fast to grow and requires less water than other fabric sources, it is a relatively environmentally-friendly fabric. However, a huge amount of toxic chemical processing is used to turn bamboo into that super-soft fabric, and half of those chemicals are dumped directly into the environment after pr [...]

    8. There is way too much stuff in this book to tackle all the recommendations at once. A few parts could be more helpful. I know I should buy locally grown food, but where? Still, the book is filled with tons of useful and motivating information.
