"An excellent how-to guide [and] a great read for everyone from the socially conscious family to the most ardent climate activist."--Former Vice President Al Gore Imagine It! is a handbook for those who want to begin or advance a journey toward living in better balance with our planet. It inspires, supports, and offers easy ways to replace old, planet-hurting habits with new healthy ones. In Imagine It!, the documentary filmmakers behind Writing on the Wall, Fed Up, The Biggest Little Farm, The Social Dilemma, and the Academy Award-winning An Inconvenient Truth highlight the need to change some of our food, clothing, and transportation habits and meaningfully lower our use of plastic, paper, water, and harmful chemicals. They call the changes in these areas lifestyle shifts, and there is a chapter devoted to each one of them in the book. Each begins with a short story on the shift being explored, and then provides clear steps for replacing old habits with new ones to create lasting change. Laurie David and Heather Reisman are no strangers to exposing hard truths and helping audiences understand their part in bringing about change. They know a cleaner, healthier world is ours for the taking--and to start, we just have to Imagine It!

    I liked this book. I’m a member of that “ok boomer” generation, so the friendly tone and up-front presentation of information was just what I needed. Every chapter focused on an aspect of environmental concern and ways that that the individual could make an impact, with plenty of suggestions of organizations to become a part of, should you want to delve deeper. I will definitely keep this around and use it as a resource. That being said, the authors only briefly touched on one of the reasons our I liked this book.

I will definitely keep this around and use it as a resource. That being said, the authors only briefly touched on one of the reasons our lifestyle has gotten us into such a helluva predicament - in the clothing chapter, Laurie David and Heather Reisman talk about how we’ve been seduced by fashion makers into adding to our wardrobes with cheap throwaway items - well what about the rest of the manufacturers of just about everything else? We’ve been seduced into buying gadgets and and food and junk to make our lives easier and these corporations are often powerful enough to influence public policy. It’s one thing to write a letter to a company or retailer complaining about environmental hazards in a product. (It’s quite another to fight against the oil and gas lobby, for example.) Another suggestion could be to write to editors and journalists of our digital news that contains an abundance of style/fashion/celebrity/ aspirational “articles” - that it’s offensive and encourages the very consumer driven lifestyle that got us here in the first place.

    A very practical and useful guide for a more sustainable life. A must read for nowadays. It is simple to understand, perfect for reading in family. I would recommend going one chapter per month as suggested in the book as it can be a bit overwhelming all the things we take for granted and the changes we need to make.
