“Sustainability is very much influenced by our individual behaviors. Careful, thoughtful and sustainable behaviors create a better and more sustainable world for everyone. Yet, at the individual level it is notoriously difficult to change our habits — but this is exactly what is needed for a better world. Duhigg is an award-winning journalist who did his homework on the behavioral science and neuroscience underlying our habits, and offers some great ideas for how might succeed in changing the behaviors that matter most. The ‘chain of positive change’ begins with you!”

McDonough and Braungart want to turn on its head our very understanding of the human role on earth: Instead of protecting the planet from human impact, why not redesign our activity to improve the environment? We can have a beneficial, sustainable footprint. Abundance for all. The goal is within our reach.

She was one of the first people to call attention to the ways that we were destroying our planet in the name of progress. She looked specially at the damage being done by pesticides and how information about this was either incomplete, at best, or hidden from the public. As a marine biologist, she used science to understand the seriousness of contamination by synthetic pesticides and her holistic approach took into account the effect on humans as well as the natural environment.

It is the story of a Baptist Minister who decides to move to the deep Congo with his wife and four daughters. The story is told through the lenses of the five women and this makes it very important in the current context when must women play a significant role, it shows a clash of cultures and the notion of how sustainability is understood from each side. It is also a different way to dive into Africa that represents so much for the future of a sustainable world.

I think the moment has come that we must think how to contribute in the climate change fight; transition is not only in the big companies activity, but also in the small daily individual actions. This book sees the traditional environmentalism from a new perspective. It is a lesson about how being sustainable is not only positive for the planet, but also for the companies and for each one of us. Inspiring reading
