Tales of a Reluctant Home Eco-Momics Pioneer
I was recently lucky enough to have met Kristi Marsh, the author of Little Changes, when she attended a small gathering for my local Eco-Moms group. I scooped up a copy as soon as I could, and could not wait to share my book review with you.
Having met Kristi, hearing her voice and seeing her mannerisms as I read, it made the book that much more interesting. The book on its own is a great read, even without the author narrating in your head! It has all the “boxes” checked—it makes you laugh, cry, want to read more, and also take action.
Kristi wrote this book as a tale of her battles— both as a wife and mother, then of a wife and mother fighting breast cancer. She was launched into a journey of learning about herself, and then into the vast, tangled forest of chemicals in our products, homes, environment and foods.
Little Changes is a great introduction to what happened in the past, what is happening now, and the little changes you can make to improve what happens in the future.
We cared. We made a difference. We are pioneer girls, one little change at a time.
From the development of plastics and pesticides, to Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring, to the formation of The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, Kristi leads us through how we got to where we are, without the doom and gloom. Rather, she inspires readers to take action by making better choices and sharing/speaking out.
