My Favorite Sustainable Living Books for Your Reference Library

Sustainable living doesn’t have to mean living off grid with no running water. It certainly can be if that’s what you want, but it doesn’t have to be. My family of six is homesteading in a modern house and enjoy a lot of electronic luxuries, but we still try to reduce our environmental footprint through green living practices.

 I consider homesteaders to be responsible stewards of the earth, right?! People who are taking real life steps toward self-sufficiency, no matter how small. If you want to take step by step control of your own life, these favorite sustainable living books will help you! Included in my list of favorite sustainable living books are:

  • Books on organic gardening
  • Raising livestock
  • Striving for a zero-waste lifestyle
  • Living a green, eco-friendly life
  • Small, hygge living
  • Healthy cooking
