Ecoholic: Your Guide to the Most Environmentally Friendly Information, Products, and Services Ecoholic: Your Guide to the Most Environmentally Friendly Information, Products, and Services

by Adria Vasil

Book Reviews

"Adria Vasil puts everything you need to know about living a greener, healthier life into one entertaining volume. It is thorough, cheeky, fun, and damn useful."
--Lloyd Alter,

"This book is for people who want to do something to lighten their impact on the planet."
--David Suzuki

"If you're looking for an in-depth, well-rounded guide to environmentally friendly living, Ecoholic is a great choice."
--Montreal Gazette

Online Reviews

"The book is worth the read, and I think it will also become a good reference book in our library. I found a few things in it I hadn’t heard of before but want to look into more now, including a kitchen composter and some special grass that doesn't need to be mowed! I'm sure I will post about those more in the future too!"

"I'm far from finished reading -- it's the kind of guide you 'drop into' as need arises, but find yourself lingering over long after you've found your answer. But I can tell you truthfully that I love this book. . . .Vasil has a no-nonsense directness and calls things like she sees them. If a product's marketing story smacks of hypocrisy or the product itself contains cleverly disguised dangers, you can bet she'll tell you. If there's a hidden dark side, it's hidden no more."
--Blue Planet Green Living 

"This book is loaded with realistic, eco-friendly tips on clothing, food, cosmetics, transportation, and money . . .You can check it out at your local library, but it's an exhaustive reference book, so you'll eventually want to buy a copy for your bookshelf. It's organized in an approachable way with informative sidebars and suggested electronic resources to check products you use."
--Leading Reads

"I learned so much reading this book, and though I have barely made a dent (using curly florescent bulbs), but I am going to make some changes. If everyone read this book and followed some of Vasil's advice, we might all live on a better planet."
--Life Happens While Books Are Waiting

"I did enjoy the wide range of subjects covered, from jewelry to eco-friendly sex, which are not normally seen in 'green' books. This is a comprehensive guide for the interested, and a solid reference to refer to again and again."
--Beth's Book Review Blog 

"Now, you will just have to go out and buy the book to see what else you can do to help the environment, I admit, when I read it, I was quite scared about what we use and what it does to the earth.  Let's try to do our part to save the only place we call home -- Our Earth."
--Serendipitous Reading

"The index at the end of the book is wonderful as is the glossary and a list of national environmental organizations. Ecoholic is not a bible for environmentalism. It is an everyday reference tool, fun to read and easy to implement. I not only had a great time reading this book, the website is fantastic!"
