Living Green, Simply

If you’ve ever felt confused by the challenge of living a simpler, more sustainable life, you’ll want to come to Magers & Quinn to hear Ellen Sandbeck. The noted author and worm rancher will be in the store on at 7:30pm, Tuesday, January 19, to talk about her new book Green Barbarians.

Ellen’s common sense, no-holds-barred approach will appeal to anyone who feels confused or inundated by the contradictory information about organic and green products now dominating our marketplace. Green Barbarians shows that by mustering a bit of courage, arming ourselves with information, and rejecting the notion that antibacterial hand wipes, organic food, color-preserving laundry detergent and countless other modern day conveniences are always best, we can live happier, safer, more ecologically and economically responsible lives.

This event is co-sponsored by Twin Cities Green (2405 Hennepin Ave S, Minneapolis; 612/374-4581). At TC Green, you’ll find a diverse collection items–recycled, reclaimed, natural, organic, sustainable–for your home and life, all deeply researched to provide you with the best guilt-free green products at the most affordable prices.
