Sophie Uliano's Gorgeously Green promises '8 Simple Steps to an Earth-Friendly Life'. From that title, you may expect the book to merely cover the obvious areas of recycling and being friendly to the environment, but you'll be delighted to find that is covers a whole lot more. With a foreword by Julia Roberts, you know you're in good company from the start.

Focusing on one step per week, the aim is to have you living green in every aspect of your life by the time you hit the last page. By helping you recognize what is green, you will be armed with the knowledge to make the right decisions in regard to food, your home, travel and beauty.

Each chapter covers everything you need to know and many include recipes, instructions and how-to's to start you off. There's never been a better time to become Gorgeously Green and this is the perfect book to get you started.
