I really wanted to love this, and I liked it - and would recommend it, or at least the Green as a Thistle blog - but I didn't love it. I'd give it a 3.5 if I could.

I kept getting irritated at Vanessa ... it took her how many months to give up paper napkins? At the same time, she unplugged her fridge and sold her car really early in the challenge, so maybe it all evens out.

Some offhand things drove me nuts - like that she rarely seemed to take public transportation and would pay $15 every time she parked at the Manulife Centre to see a movie when she lives downtown (on a streetcar line) and could clearly bike, walk, or TTC it and be thrifty AND green.

But an interesting challenge, and I am definitely going to implement some of her green changes/ideas.

Isis Worst title ever, IMHO.

Stephanie Maybe they are trying for the "green is sexy" thing?

I don't know if the title choice is explained at the author's blog...
