There has been a flood of attention given to the small actions we can take to live in a more environmentally friendly way–from reducing water use to conserving electricity. Building an eco-responsible lifestyle is a great first step, but to affect real change in the world we must learn how to look beyond our own lives and connect to the larger issues.

In this unique book, Stephanie Kaza makes that big-picture connection for us. Influenced by her background in Buddhism, she offers a simple philosophy for engaging in environmental action in real, practical, and effective ways. Readers will find new methods to evaluate their own relationship to the environment, think more deeply about their impact on the natural world, engage in environmental change, and make living green a personal practice that comes from compassion and true conviction.

“In a time when imperatives to save the earth rain down upon us, Stephanie Kaza offers a votive of wisdom–a path to self where we can hold the impossible dilemmas of our day in the heart of generosity, not fear; compassionate service, not guilt. Mindfully Green is a balm to the spirit, food for the long road ahead to a restored and honored planet.”–Paul Hawken, author of Blessed Unrest

“Stephanie Kaza is one of the wisest, kindest, and most sensible people I know, and this book is a perfect distillation of all those qualities. It will be of immense value to anyone looking for ways to live less in opposition to the forces of nature and community (which is the way of our consumer society) and more in their embrace. I can’t recommend this book highly enough.”–Bill McKibben, author of Deep Economy
