In Be the Change You Want to See in the World, Julie Fisher-McGarry speaks to the burgeoning eco-conscious-consumer market on how to dwell well on a daily basis. Organized by month, she includes tips on living green, where to purchase organic and fair-trade products, how to unplug from the grid, supporting local economies, and nourishing the earth and creating a sustainable lifestyle.

"Most of us want to live healthier lives. Most of us want to be part of the solution, and not part of the problem. But it's not so easy in a world that seems out of touch with some important and basic human realities. That's why Julie Fisher-McGarry's book is so important, so useful, and so needed. It's simple, easy to use, and fun. Each day's entry is clear and uplifting and will help align your life with your values and your love." --John Robbins, from the foreword
