'Green Circles: A Sustainable Journey from the Cradle to the Grave'     Send a link to a friend

[April 30, 2007]  Chuck Hall's latest book, "Green Circles: A Sustainable Journey from the Cradle to the Grave," will be released to the public on July 1.

The book offers a unique perspective on green living and sustainability by observing environmentally friendly living throughout the human life cycle. Starting with natural childbirth, finishing with green burial and examining all phases of life in between, Hall offers tips and suggestions to help each of us live a greener lifestyle.

Hall, whose newspaper column on environmental topics, The Culture Artist, is currently carried by over 50 newspapers nationwide, had this to say about his upcoming book:

"Does green living matter? I think we should consider the consequences either way. What if the environmentalists are wrong, and things like global warming and depletion of natural resources aren't really happening? Well, if they're wrong, and we take action anyway, the consequences will be a cleaner environment, better health and more available resources for everyone. But if the anti-environmentalists are wrong, and we really are running out of resources and heating up the planet in the process, what are the consequences if we take no action at all?

"That's why I think green living matters. If the readers of my book 'Green Circles' apply these tips and techniques to their own lifestyles, things can only get better. It's a win-win situation."
