9 Books About Sustainability That Will Inspire You To Live A More Earth Friendly Lifestyle

By Kerri Jarema

Sure, we celebrate our planet on Earth Day every April 22. But we all know that we need to be doing way more to insure that we're living eco-friendly lives and protecting the environment from catastrophe. Of course, sometimes that feels far easier said than done. And with a current administration that is attacking environmental protections and touting dangerous falsehoods about climate change, it can be too simple to fall into the trap that nothing can truly be accomplished. But when it comes to our impact on the environment, small changes en masse can actually make a huge difference to our quality of life around the world.

The nine books below all tackle different aspects of sustainability, from the clothes we wear to the food we eat to adopting a more minimalist lifestyle in general. They offer proven facts about the causes of climate change, and the effect we can have on reversing it by adopting simple day-to-day changes like walking more, cutting back on fast fashion and lessening our use of plastic. It may all seem daunting when you watch the news, but these books will help put it all into perspective and give you the tools you need to really help change the world for the better.
