About this book

If the Buddha were alive today, he'd be the living embodiment of green living. He'd be collecting cans on the freeway, riding his bike to work, and replacing all his lightbulbs - one little satori at a time. In "What Would the Buddha Recycle?", readers can channel His Holiness, reduce their footprint, and experience little Aha! moments when they: eat mindfully and lose the meat; make a Zen garden that nourishes the earth; choose sustainable clothing; meditate while walking instead of driving; and, let go of attachment to things by giving away belongings. Living green is living Zen. Now readers can take right action and walk a green talk, starting today - just think how proud the Buddha would be!
