Lazy Environmentalist on a Budget [Giveaway]

Lazy_Environmentalist_Budget We're giving away a copy of this book to one commenter below, so make sure to comment with a valid email before midnight on Friday, June 19, 2009.*

Josh Dorfman, green entrepreneur and television host of The Lazy Environmentalist (now showing on the Sundance Channel), is also the author of the newly released book The Lazy Environmentalist on a Budget: Save Money. Save Time, Save the Planet.  In his second book, Josh sets out to create environmental change with easy, stylish, and affordable solutions. 

The Lazy Environmentalist on a Budget will appeal to business-minded readers.  Each chapter includes a mini-case study of some green company such as RecycleBank, SolarCity, Zero Motorcycles, Cyber-Rain, and Walk Score, etc.  

Jetson Green readers will also enjoy the chapters on water conservation, energy savings, green home remodeling, and environmental careers.  It's all with a focus on affordability, which is something we could use a little more of.  Go give the book a look at your nearest bookstore, or buy a copy at:

    Full time college + Part time artist/designer = way to little green to spend on green

    (So, winning this book would be great!)

    The mini-case studies sound very interesting – it’s always good to hear how green practices are working out in real life!

    Favorite blog dealing with creative environmental architecture and design.
    Good to see that “green” has gone mainstream enough to allow for the lazy’s to get in on the action. *Aren’t we all a bit lazy from time to time….?

  • Brian

    After being reduced to part time at my current job, I could use a little extra reading material. I just caught an episode of the show through onDemand and liked it much better than whatever the show with the girl from TBS’ dinner and movie is on now where she tries to help people go green.

    My wife and I would really benefit from this book. We are in the beginning stages of selling “almost” every possession. The Furniture…Gone, The Art work…Gone, The Large SUV…It’s all soon to be history and not soon enough. We’re not selling because we’re in financial trouble, we always have lived within our means. We’re selling to simplify our lives. We want to get rid of the static of the world and live life how we feel that it was suppose to be lived. We’re not sure what we’re going to do after we sell our home (and every unneeded item that we have collected along the way) but we’re ready for the journey. My only concern is that we may not have space in our new home for an extra book 😉

    I’ve heard so many great things about this book and that it gives really good insight to those who are unaware and unmotivated. For those who still are skeptical should put this on their reading list just for reference, and a little more knowledge.
