“It’s likely when you make one small eco-friendly change to your lifestyle, that one simple change spurs new changes. Living greener and respectfully starts where you are. Don’t fret – there are so many different paths to explore, you don’t have to be a perfectionist.”
In this treasure of a book, Loretta Fontaine, the award-winning designer, blogger and photographer, reflects on what it takes to live “Eco-Happy” – to live respectfully every day, without regrets, and find happiness at the intersection of Earth-friendly living and joy.
In her writing, Loretta describes the three simple rules she has set to guide a path to a greener life, accompanied by over fifty prints of of her original color and black and white photographs, spread lavishly throughout the book.
These images show scenes as she found them - a stream tumbling through mossy boulders in Oregon, a child playfully scaling an uprooted tree in the Adirondacks, the delicate coloring of a single leaf in a Vermont forest. Seeking out the beauty and wonder in every scene, and ever watchful for intimate details, Loretta pairs her expressive, thoughtful photography with an enchanting text to create this unique and joyful book celebrating living a greener and happier life.
