Virtual - Environmental Book Club: Read "Inconspicuous Consumption" *For Adults
Wednesday, May 10, 2023
Please join us for the Environmental Book Club! Each month, we'll choose a topic related to climate change, sustainability, and/or what we can do to lessen our footprint.
This month we'll be discussing the book "Inconspicuous Consumption: The Environmental Impact You Don't Know You Have" by Tatiana Schlossberg.
"Inconspicuous Consumption will empower you to stand up to climate change and environmental pollution by making simple but impactful everyday choices. Former New York Times Science writer, Tatiana Schlossberg explains that far from being only a distant problem of the natural world created by the fossil fuel industry, climate change is all around us, all the time, lurking everywhere in our convenience-driven society, all without our realizing it.
By examining the unseen and unconscious environmental impacts in four areas - the internet and technology, food, fashion, and fuel - Schlossberg helps readers better understand why climate change is such a complicated issue. Schlossberg makes the climate crisis and its solutions interesting and relevant to everyone who cares, even a little, about the planet. She empowers readers to think about their stuff and the environment in a new way, helping them make more informed choices when it comes to the future of our world.
This is a book about the power we have as voters and consumers to make sure that the fight against climate change includes all of us and all of our stuff, not just industry groups and politicians. If we have any hope of solving the problem, we all have to do it together."
