About Girls Who Green the World
Part biography, part guidebook to the contemporary environmental movement, this book is the perfect gift for future and current activists and changemakers! Girls Who Green the World features the inspiring stories of 34 revolutionaries fighting for our future!

An inspired collection of profiles, featuring environmental changemakers, social entrepreneurs, visionaries and activists.  
 
Journalist Diana Kapp has crisscrossed this country writing for and about empowered girls, girls who expect to be leaders, founders and inventors. This book takes it a step further. It says to girls: while you’re striving to be CEOs and world leaders, consider solving the biggest challenge of our lifetime, too—because you can do both at the same time, and here are 34 women doing just that.

About One Green Thing
Unlock your eco-friendly superpower in this revolutionary call to action, and create a daily practice of sustainability to protect the environment.

The climate crisis is the biggest challenge of our time, and we all have a unique role to play. Start here and now with this book. In this revolutionary call to action, unlock your superpower through a daily practice of sustainability.

Noted environmentalist Heather White offers an easy-to-follow guide for climate action while brilliantly weaving together warm and funny stories from her childhood in East Tennessee, anecdotes from 20+ years of environmental advocacy, and scenes from parenting two GenZ daughters in Bozeman, Montana. 

In One Green Thing, White shows you how to contribute to the climate movement through self-discovery – your personality, interests, and strengths.

First, you’ll take the Service Superpower Profile Assessment, which will reveal your special gifts in service to others and the planet.  Based on your profile, you’ll then be equipped to:

  • Begin your adventure with a 21-Day Kickstarter Plan that shares specific actions you can take
  • Use the Eco-Impact Top Ten—the primary areas that can affect positive, lasting change—to develop an individualized Eco-Action Plan
  • Log the mental health benefits and measure your progress with the Joy Tracker
  • Write about your journey and your “why” for taking action with exercises and journal prompts that encourage you to reflect
  • Listen and talk with members of Gen Z about their climate anxiety
  • Commit to being an awesome ancestor for future loved ones as you inspire your family, friends, and community to work toward a regenerative, sustainable world 

Setting the intention each day to take a small step— a “one green thing” to care for the planet--can help ease your eco-anxiety, push the culture toward climate solutions, and create a sense of joy.
