CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $16.95 AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

We're destroying the planet, undermining happiness, and clinging to an unsustainable economy. Our obsessive pursuit of wealth isn't working. But there's another way. Less can be More. Throughout history wise people have argued that we need to live more simply — that only by limiting outer wealth can we have inner wealth.

With Less is More, editors Cecile Andrews and Wanda Urbanska have put together a compelling collection of works by people who have been writing about simplicity for decades, including Bill McKibben, Sarah Susanka, John de Graaf, Bryan Welch and many more.

These thinkers bring us a new vision of less: less stuff, less work, less stress, less debt. A life with less becomes a life with more: more time, more satisfaction, more balance, more security. When we have too much, we savor nothing. When we choose less, we regain our life and can think and feel deeply. Ultimately, a life of less connects us with one true source of happiness: being a part of a caring community.

Wanda Urbanska is producer and host of Simple Living with Wanda Urbanska. She is author or co-author of numerous books, including Simple Living and Nothing's Too Small to Make a Difference.

CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $9.99 AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

Avoid the mess of stirring and cooking with this 10.5-inch-long, handsome and understated spoon rest from Natural Home. Made of stainless steel with light brown bamboo accents, this practical kitchen accessory will save you extra clean-up time while lending its uniquely natural beauty to the most-used room in your home.

Tough, durable and lightweight, bamboo is a natural in the kitchen. One of nature's most sustainable resources, bamboo is stronger than oak and reaches maturity in just four years — without pesticides. Bamboo's density makes it naturally water-resistant, which inhibits germs and bacteria. It won't scratch your pans like metal and doesn't absorb moisture like conventional wood.

Though used like timber, bamboo is a grass that self-propagates as it spreads underground via a network of rhizomes. A white oak tree takes 120 years to grow to maturity; bamboo takes three-and-a-half to seven years. This self-regenerating plant grows without pesticides and needs very little water; some species grow as much as 3 feet a day. Because of its fast growth rate, bamboo sequesters carbon dioxide at faster rates than hardwood trees — another bonus for the environment.

Stainless steel does not leach chemicals. The stainless steel used is 93 percent recycled.

Care instructions: Hand wash only.
Manufactured in China.

Drip irrigation is the best way to help any plant flourish and survive tough times, especially during short or long droughts. Pick the wrong "stuff" and you easily can feel overwhelmed. Robert Kourik's Drip Irrigation for Every Landscape and All Climates clearly explains how to use less water yet increase the yields of vegetables and promote the growth and flowering of all plants — trees, shrubs and container plants — in any climate, even where it rains irregularly.

In the tradition of the original groundbreaking book, this fully revised edition incorporates new information essential for gardeners, including how to manage limited water supplies with precision and efficiency, without the clutter of hundreds of widgets and gizmos, and the knowledge is shared in Kourik's inimitable, friendly, down-to-earth and easy-to-understand style.

Drip Irrigation for Every Landscape and All Climates reveals how to:

  • Utilize drip irrigation for everything you grow — trees, shrubs, hanging plants, container plants, and vegetable and flower gardens — and save up to 50 percent of your water compared to sprinklers.
  • Use a streamlined configuration of hardware and tubing.
  • Choose the best, sturdiest hardware that will last for decades in your home landscape and vegetable garden.
  • Pick tubing that has no emitters punched on the outside — these have a tendency to break off — and use this tubing buried beneath the surface to irrigate without losing any water to wind or evaporation.
  • Roll out a drip system in a very short period of time, avoiding tedious hours punching in emitters or adding smaller tubing to reach each plant.
  • Capture and reuse gray water and cistern water for irrigation.
  • Construct a system in which the main parts are effectively hidden or can be simply attached to an existing garden faucet.

About the author:
During the 1975 California drought, Robert Kourik created a primitive drip system, and since then, he has continued to innovate using the latest technologies. He has written 10 instructional books advocating sustainable gardening, edible landscaping and a healthy lifestyle, including Roots Demystified. He lives in Occidental, Calif.

CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $37.95. AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

Some 40 percent of North Americans live in homes built before 1940, and when it comes time to remodel or restore our older homes, homeowners and contractors can find themselves lost in a morass of wildly divergent information and opinion. With Green Restorations, author Aaron Lubeck brings his expertise as a restoration contractor and preservation consultant to this first-of-its-kind guide, leading the reader through the steps for restoring historic building using sustainable practices and green building techniques.

In a readily accessible room-by-room and system-by-system format, Green Restorations covers rehabilitation and remodelling questions applicable to old homes, focusing on the core techniques and debates often seen in practice. Here you'll find the answers to restoration questions, such as:

  • Is sealing my old crawl space a good idea?
  • Should I replace or rehabilitate my windows?
  • Are there historic aspects of my home I need to preserve, and what can I change?
  • What are the cultural, environmental and financial implications of my proposed changes?
  • Do residential historic tax credits apply to my home and how can I access them?

Written in such a way as to be accessible for homeowners but technical enough for contractors, this book will appeal to anyone trying to green an older home while preserving its historic and cultural significance.

About the Author

Aaron Lubeck is a partner with Trinity Design/Build, a restoration and preservation consultancy in North Carolina that has won numerous preservation awards. He is a member of the United States Green Building Council who has completed the first historic building to be LEED-certified in North Carolina.

CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $30.00 AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

Today a single family can include staunch vegetarians as well as passionate meat lovers. When company shows up, the situation gets even more complicated. How can you satisfy them all without making two (or three) completely different meals?

In The Flexitarian Table, the award-winning author Peter Berley presents menus that are flexible, exciting, relaxing to prepare — and that make everyone feel welcome. With The Flexitarian Table, you'll no longer treat vegetarians as afterthoughts by offering them a couple of scanty side dishes, and you'll be able to indulge meat eaters at the same time with abundant, satisfying dishes.

You'll learn how to prepare vegetarian and meat versions simultaneously without going to any extra trouble. Roast a succulent, crisp chicken with lemon and thyme — and make a tofu version in just minutes. Put some meaty portobello mushroom caps on the grill and, for the carnivore contingent, throw on a steak, then pair them both with a zesty bread crumb salsa. Simmer white beans with carrot and celery and saute some shrimp, drizzling each with the same rich brown butter sauce with fresh herbs.

You'll find many sumptuous vegetarian dishes as well, including cannelloni with ricotta, Parmesan and mint or a hearty lasagna with roasted fall vegetables in a sage-scented cheese sauce. Or serve up a selection of easy little dishes and let your guests choose.

You'll get plenty of ideas for get-dinner-quick meals, such as winter tomato soup with goat cheese crostini and Spanish-style fried eggs, and for luxurious weekend fare try cumin-spiced lamb croquettes and falafel, served with two traditional Middle Eastern sauces and whole-wheat pita bread.

The Flexitarian Table also shows you how to cook with the seasons, so you get the most flavor from your ingredients while you enjoy varied, sustainable meals year-round.
