Here are four awesome books if you’re into going green without spending too much green.

1. Do It Gorgeously: How to Make Less Toxic, Less Expensive, and More Beautiful Products

wywalk says about this book,
Definitely my favorite of the Gorgeously Green books!! I get so tired of what I like to call “Organic Conspicuous Consumption” – the “I’m so Green because all 538 of my yoga outfits are made from organic cotton” school of thought, and I love the idea that our grandmothers and great-grandmothers were green without even trying to be. On the other hand, I struggle as much as the next person with sacrifice and self-denial. I’m definitely very into using all sorts of eye creams and anti-aging things on my face – it’s my biggest beauty expenditure. Well, I’ve already made a few of the beauty products, and I’m totally in love! Do you have any idea how much money I’m going to save this year?!

Aside from the Beauty Product recipes, my other favorite part is the 5 Uses for Common Household Items – having them grouped like that makes so much sense, as far as actually incorporating them into your life.

I’ll admit that as I leaf through the book, I occasionally get DIY Fatigue (I can’t make EVERYTHING homemade!!!”), but then I remind myself that even focusing on one or two of the chapters (for me it’s beauty and cleaning supplies) can make a big difference…

Wonderfully fun and inspiring!
