Eco-Libris: plant a tree for every book you read!

And the winner is..

Thank you for all the participants in our giveaway of the new book 'Ready, Set, Green: Eight Weeks to Modern Eco-Living' we reviewed last Monday. We got great ideas, and I must say it was also a good opportunity to check out what women think that motivates men (hint: 'no sex' threat or 'more sex' incentive will do the work :-).

The winning offer is the one of the reader Alice H. who suggested the following: I think the best way is to make it simple and easy - like have a recycling tub clearly labelled right next to the garbage. And to compliment a lot when they do something green." Simple with positive compliments? I buy it!

Congratulations, Alice and thank you to all the other participants for the great advice. I hope your partners will follow suit no matter what strategy you choose.

And don't forget to keep following our giveaways. We have many more green books to review and give away so stay tuned.
