Description


An inspiring and approachable tip-filled guide to changing your habits, living more sustainably, and taking action, by Greenpeace ambassador Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter movies)

Go Gently is a guide for sustainability at home that offers simple, tangible steps toward reducing our environmental impact by looking at what we consume and the waste we create, as well as how to take action for environmental change. The title reflects Bonnie Wright’s belief that the best way to change our planet and ourselves is through a gentle approach, rather than a judgmental one. This is a book of do’s rather than don’ts. It’s also an invitation to Wright’s followers to join her on this journey to sustainability.

Going through every room in her home, Wright helps us assess which products are sustainable, and alternatives for those that are not. She shares recipes to avoid waste, homemade self-care products to avoid packaging, small space-friendly gardening ideas, and a template for creating your own compost system. Finally, to sustain yourself, there are exercises and meditation prompts to keep you energized, plus info on how to get involved in community and organizations.

About the Author


For the past ten years, Bonnie Wright has been advocating for climate justice and the protection of our environment. Her initial focus was plastics in our oceans. She has studied sustainability at UCLA and has used her social media platform of over 3 million to amplify the importance of environmental health. She is also a filmmaker. Initially Bonnie Wright gained fame as Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter films, but this has expanded to a broader demographic in recent years. Since 2017, Bonnie has been an ambassador for Greenpeace, focusing on single-use plastic pollution and the connection to the fossil fuel and petrochemical industry.

Praise For…


"The impacts of the climate crisis can feel overwhelming and daunting. Bonnie’s approach to explaining the moment we are in now, coupled with concrete strategies that we can take to make our planet a sustainable place, reminds us that there is hope! Environmental Activism lives in each of us and Bonnie has provided the roadmap in Go Gently.”
--Ebony Twilley Martin, Co-Executive Director Greenpeace USA

A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye.
