Resources for a Sustainable Brain

If you’re like me, when you get excited about a topic, you want to do as much research as humanly possible in order to grasp its full extent.  For me, this involves buying every book that exists on the subject and devouring their content.  I’m constantly on Amazon.com searching for books on sustainable living and the environment so I was thrilled when I found this website.  Island Press and the US Green Building Council have teamed up to provide the GreenWorksBook Club, a resource for all books relating to sustainability and green building.  USGBC members even get a 40% discount on all books purchased through the site. 

One of their top picks today is a book that’s on my list to read, Natural Capitalism by Amory Lovins.  Based on the principle that business can be good for the environment, Natural Capitalism discusses companies that are creating a new industrial revolution, one that is both efficient and profitable, all while protecting jobs and the environment.  The purpose of this book is twofold – one to show that there are alternative ecological options to running a business and two that is is easy and feasible for businesses to use them. 

I look forward to getting through my stack to read it but in the mean time, I will continue to add to it by perusing the books listed at GreenWorks.  There’s never a shortage of things to learn.
