In Green Made Easy, author and green pioneer Chris Prelitz shares how to be both environmental and economical at the same time. Going green is not only good for our planet, it’s good for your pocketbook. For over 20 years, Chris has been helping businesses, home owners, and corporations lower their monthly expenses by going green. Chris and his wife, Becky, share a green solar-powered home in Laguna Beach, California, which Chris designed and built. Most months they produce more power than they use and receive a credit from their power company instead of a bill!

In this book, Chris shares personal experiences, lessons learned, and reflections that humorously touch the heart and inspire the spirit. The chapter “Busting Green Myths” will sway even the most cynical person toward better eco-choices that will also save money. Chris says, “We’re rediscovering that it’s so much healthier, more lucrative, and better for every living thing to transition away from wasteful, polluting technologies and make choices that work in harmony with nature.”

Green Made Easy is written in a friend-to-friend, conversational style and examines our daily lives from personal care and cosmetics to solar-energy systems. This book will delight and inspire any and all who dream of making a difference and wish to create a thriving, healthy future for generations to come.

About the Author:

Chris Prelitz is a noted author, "green building" consultant and sustainability advocate. He is also a graduate of Duke Universities Environmental Leadership Program.

Chris is a pioneer of the green movement, and has been a passionately involved with high performance green building and sustainability for over 25 years. The depth of his experience spans an off-grid solar community in Taos, New Mexico, the first permitted solar powered residence in Southern California and the first ever solar powered, LEED certified auto dealership for Mercedes Benz in Arizona.

He has successfully green renovated and remodeled hundreds of homes and buildings. A recent ‘green flip’ was featured on the premier episode of Greenovate on the Discovery Channel. With New Leaf America, Chris has teamed up with partners in the financial and management sector to bring the knowledge of “How to Go Green” within reach of every homeowner and renter.

He is now most recognized for his work as a sustainability expert and public speaker. Chris is the media spokesperson for Citizenre Solar and New Leaf America, a company that he co-founded with the mission of dramatically improving the efficiency of 1 million homes by 2012.

 

Review:

"When I read Green Made Easy, it changed the way I look at the planet, and I hope it does the same for you. As we work our way through today’s economic challenges, Chris can also show you how going green is both good for our planet and good for your pocketbook. His book is packed with information that makes going green simple, inexpensive, and meaningful. Chris sprinkles ‘Green Bites’ throughout that are both inspiring and enjoyable.

"Remember, this comes from a man who receives a credit from his utility company every month instead of a bill!"

Christiane Northrup, M.D.
