Everybody wants to live more green. We all have reusable bags in the back of our cars and pledges to ride our bike to the farmer’s market. But if we don’t refuel our fire to do these things, we very often forget about them. The best way to keep that fire burning through our every day lives is to fill our minds with content that resolves for us why it is so important. It’s not always information that’s easy to ingest, but the more often we do it, the closer we all get to some change. Here’s a Boutique Next Door guide and homework list of all the best books, movies, podcasts, and social media accounts to remind you to be kind to the earth.
