Our Complete Idiot’s Guide Giveaway Today is for the GO GREEN Giveaway EVENT!
I am from Michigan, I have 3 children who attend Michigan State University…School Colors? Green and White! So in our family, Go GREEN takes on a whole new meaning. (GO SPARTANS!) Green makes others think of grass, our buddy Kermit the Frog, and green clovers on St. Patrick’s Day! But today, the GREEN we are celebrating is a lifestyle structured around being responsible to the environment and sustainable living.
BEING GREEN is not inherent to all of us, so the Complete Idiot’s Guide GREEN series offers up several titles to our readers to help you attain your highest green potential! The Titles for our Complete Idiot’s Guide Giveaway featured today include:

Chief Blonde Remarks: We are seriously lucky to have Complete Idiot’s Guides as a Giveaway today for the GREEN EVENT. We have previously featured Complete Idiot’s Guides on our blog and it was one of our most popular Book review/Giveaway in the history of our Blog. Complete Idiot’s Guides know how to break down a subject into the essential elements. The layout and breakdown of each guide is perfect when you want to quickly and efficiently learn about a subject. You can also do a deep dive by reading all the chapters as most important components related to a topic are always there. I found each of the GREEN guides to be particularly intriguing. I am very interested in Buying Locally so I think I could further that passion into Eating Locally as outlined in the Complete Idiot’s Guide to Eating Local. I can’t see myself raising chickens and small livestock but raised gardens and making my own bread are not of the realm as is covered in the Complete Idiot’s Guide to Self-Sufficient Living and also CIG to Urban Homesteading. I feel that I really do practice GREEN in my business–I don’t drive to my work, I work from home; I don’t print anything, I just store digitally; and I dial down the thermostat during the day–the Complete Idiot’s Guide to Greening your Business suggests several of your of these techniques to focus your business on Green.
