Wanting to better understanding the motivations and drivers of my SBLP colleagues, I recently polled our staff and interns on what some of their favorite books and documentaries are that are relevant to the field of sustainability. (Okay, maybe I was just looking for a new book to read…) Regardless of my own intentions, here’s what I found.

Books & Guides:

Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver

Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things by William McDonough & Michael Braungart

Eaarth by Bill McKibben

The Ecology of Commerce by Paul Hawken

Fast Food Nation by Eric Schloser

Fostering Sustainable Behavior by Doug McKenzie-Mohr & William Smith

Global Warming Reader, Edited by Bill McKibben

The Green Collar Economy by Van Jones

Green to Gold by Daniel Esty and Andrew Winston

Hot, Flat, & Crowded by Thomas Friedman

In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan

Let My People Go Surfing: The Education of a Reluctant Businessman by Yvon Chouinard

We encourage you to purchase any of these, or other, books from your favorite local, independent bookshop. Can’t think of any? Try one of our SBLP graduates or participants such as Harvard Book Store or Brookline Booksmith.
