PRAISE FOR ADRIA VASIL

“This is the kind of information for people who want to do something to lighten their impact on the planet. The small steps cost us little in the way of effort, cost or time, but the cumulative effects of doing many of them can be enormous.”  — DAVID SUZUKI

“Adria Vasil’s Ecoholic is a slickly produced and irreverently toned book that makes going green seem almost sexy. It also walks the walk, being printed in vegetable-based inks on 100% post-consumer recycled and chlorine-free paper with a UV-strengthened cover.”  — QUILL & QUIRE
