Most eco-friendly books start with terror-inducing lists of the carcinogenic chemicals you are liberally slathering all over every single surface in your house, painting most people as unwitting eco-villains, happily Lysol-ing their way straight to hell. Well, readers can just relax and unpack the (plastic) bags ― no guilt trips today! All You Need is Less is about realistically adopting an eco-friendly lifestyle without either losing your mind from soul-destroying guilt or becoming a preachy know-it-all whom everyone loathes. It’s all gotten kind of complicated, hasn’t it? This whole eco-friendly thing seems to have devolved into a horrific cycle of guilt, shaming, and one-upping, and as a result people are becoming exhausted. It doesn’t have to be this way. It is possible to take baby steps towards a more Earth-friendly lifestyle without stress, guilt, or judgmental eco-shaming. Top eco-blogger Madeleine Somerville is here with really original ideas on how to save money and the planet. Her ideas are even fun! Somerville has emerged as the voice of reason on urban homesteading that is stress-free, sanity-based, and above all do-able.

From the Back Cover:

Green Your Life and Your Wallet 

Did you know that wool dryer balls work like magic to keep your laundry fluffy, without coating your clothes in animal fat that store-bought dryer sheets leave behind? They’re simple to make and a fun craft project for kids, too. And did you know 7 million trees are cut down annually for the paper cups your coffee is served in? Recycle a jelly container from home and you will save an entire forest while getting lots of compliments on your coffee jar. 

Top eco-blogger and new parent Madeleine Somerville has gathered completely original ideas on how to save money and the planet, and have fun in the process, in All You Need Is Less. Learn how to create and not just consume! This guide to the guilt-free green life is packed with dozens of DIY ideas for shampoo and eco-cleaners, worm compost your garden will love, yummy recipes and even homemade holiday gifts and de´cor. You’ll wonder how you ever lived without this book! 

Creative ideas inside:


  • Eco-friendly baby solutions, from recipes for rash cream to biodegradable wipes 

  • Dog and kitty care, including make-it-yourself litter and flea spray 

  • Simplicity is sexy: whip up your own moisturizer and body scrub 


About the Author:

Madeleine Somerville adores writing in all its incarnations ― dramatic exclamation-filled diary entries, pseudo-journalistic endeavors for small town weeklies, and the disfigured, bastard child of the above, blogging. She has a B.A. in sociology and is addicted to commas and soft cheeses. She became an unrepentant, tree-hugging hippie after moving to British Columbia eight years ago, and daughter and dog suffer the effects of this metamorphosis on a daily basis. This is her first book.
