Autobiographical account of the struggles of a whiny Canadian woman with trying to be "green" and live an eco-friendly life. I guess I was just expecting more hints and tips--or even some real INFORMATION about living a green life rather than just a long-winded justification as to why she didn't/couldn't/wouldn't do certain 'green' things.

This book was so funny! True and blue environmentalist will not like this book but I thought it was so funny. I too suddenly realized my environmental choices were not always the "right" ones and there are too many comical choices out there.

The title is very self-explanatory. A non-fiction, journal-like version of a woman's attempt to be as green as possible, and her successes and failures along the way. Probably most well-liked by women with young kids who need some VERY light, sometimes humorous reading.
