Book Club Discussion: Making Kind Choices by Ingrid Newkirk

And our next discussion will be about...

Making Kind Choices by Ingrid Newkirk, president of PETA.

There are several copies of it in the Minuteman Library system. More about the book: Choosing a compassionate lifestyle that makes you feel good and positively impacts on the environment and on animals has never been easier. In this practical and accessible handbook, loaded with resources for all products that are mentioned, Ingrid Newkirk presents fabulous options that will not only enhance your life, but those of your neighbors, your community, animals, and the earth itself.

From comfortable home furnishings, to delicious foods, to fashionable clothing there are a myriad of choices to be made that can have a lasting positive effect on the well-being of animals and the environment, including:

- recognizing hidden animal ingredients in cosmetics and household products
- raising ecologically aware and animal-friendly kids
- creating healthy, environmentally-friendly meals for everyday and special occasions
- dressing with style without using leather or other animal products
- dealing kindly with mice, insects, and other 'pests' in home or garden
- adopting the right animal companion for you
- volunteering and investing in eco- and animal-friendly companies
- traveling with Eco-consciousness

    It was a good book, but I was glad there were other things to share besides critiquing the book. It was nice to get to know more about what each of us are doing and feeling about being vegan.

    Okay, so I ordered the book today because we talked about moving the meetup into the new year. I hope that's still the plan. :-)

    This book looks like somewhat of a text book but, that should not stop anyone from reading it! It's nicely divided up so you could just read the parts of your particular interests. I'll be focusing on Home & Garden and Fashion & Beauty. :)

    I look forward to this discussion ... hopefully, as I fly back from a business trip to Atlanta that morning. Keeping my fingers crossed there will be no flight delays.
