1. Digital Minimalism by Cal Newport is based around choosing a balanced life amid a noisy world.
2. All We Can Save has been one of our favorite things to come out of 2020. This collection of Truth, Courage, and Solutions for the Climate Crisis was elegantly crafted and easily digestible by Ayana Elizabeth Johnson, a marine biologist, Dr. Katherine Wilkinson, and many other climate activists.
3. Fixation by Sandra Goldmark sends the reader on a journey of repair woes and wins. The theme of How to Have Stuff Without Breaking the Planet pairs nicely with a minimal holiday of unnecessary gifts.
4. Atomic Habits by James Clear addresses the Remarkable Results that even Tiny Habits can yield in our lives. Know someone who is really working on more mindful habits, related to eco-living or not? This is an eye-opening read that will motivate anyone looking to break bad habits or build good ones as we head into the new year.
5. Bren Smith guides us through his Adventures as a Fisherman Turned Restorative Ocean Farmer in Eat Like A Fish. His gruff history and humor mixed with climate positive outcomes made this an entertaining and enlightening read.
6. Mending Life is a Handbook for Repairing Clothes and Hearts by Nina and Sonya Montenegro. The wholesome warmth from the Farwoods Collective shines through the beautifully illustrated pages with helpful step by step guides for mending alongside what mending means to their family.
7. 101 Ways to go Zero Waste by Kathryn Kellogg may seem like an obvious suggestion from us, but it unpacks the little things that can really add up.
