Imus shares tips on how to green the way we take care of ourselves. Topics include:  the food we eat, the clothes we wear, and the cosmetics and toiletries we use.  Imus educates consumers on a wide range of issues, including: how to eat green without paying a premium; how to identify nontoxic personal care products; which kinds of medication have the least toxic impact on our bodies and the environment; where to find clothes that are both environmentally friendly as well as fashionable; and so many others.
“Greening your life isn’t about sacrifice,” says Imus, “it’s about adding quality to your life.  A cleaner, healthier lifestyle can bring us closer to nature and the people we love.”  THE ESSENTIAL GREEN YOU! includes the most up to date scientific research and motivates conscientious consumers to reduce their exposure to environmental toxins and to make realistic and affordable changes to conventional care products and techniques.
Filled with effective solutions to the many problems our modern environment presents, THE ESSENTIAL GREEN YOU! features:  

  • A list of labels found on a range of food and grocery store products, with helpful definitions and safety precautions for staples like meat and fish, for shopping smarter every day.
  • How to make sense of the many unstudied substances in personal care products we take for granted, like shampoo and deodorant, with clear recommendations for specific nontoxic products and when to compromise.
  • A walkthrough of a wardrobe’s entire life cycle, to better understand the enormous impact clothing production has on our environment.
  • An even-handed, no-nonsense examination of dietary supplements, alternative remedies and holistic healthcare.

Packed with reliable research and Deirdre Imus’ common-sense know-how, THE ESSENTIAL GREEN YOU! proves just how easy it can be for even the busiest people to make effective, wholesome lifestyle choices for healthier, happier lives.
