Reading List: Eco and Local Books

Reading List: Eco and Local Books

When I interviewed Sass Brown this month, she had a list of great books and authors to read, which I've added to my own 'reading wish list' below.  I read Cradle to Cradle shortly after it was published and it really made a change in my purchasing behavior.  I later went to work at an organization whose President, Paulette Cole, championed the ideals of the book and was making amazing headway in her field on transparency and responsible sourcing.  

I'd love your feedback and suggestions for other books to add to this list!
