Eco Chick Guide to Life Takes Off!

Starre Signs Books
My first book signing! I’m wearing a Doie silk chiffon printed blouse that was made in New York and an Ingle and Rhode recycled silver and bamboo necklace.

I’m thrilled to announce that the first few weeks have been crazy-successful for my book, based on this very blog right here: The Eco Chick Guide to Life: How to Be Fabulously Green. Thanks to everyone for all their support!

So far, the book has been featured in:

The New York Times Style Section

Plenty Magazine’s blog (read an excerpt of the book about greening your office there!)

Star Magazine

E/The Environmental Magazine

MSN Green



Earth First

CT GreenScene

-Fashion, Evolved

The Greenloop Blog


-The Palm Beach Post

The Green Girls blog

-lots of local CT radio shows

……and more to come!

And I did (my first ever) book signing at Practically Green, a fabulous new green lifestyle store in Ridgefield, CT. I sold about 35 books, chatted with a local girl scout group, moms and grandmas who were all interested in greening up their lives.

Tonight I’ll be speaking at The Darien Library, in Darien, CT, which should be fun!

My youngest fans! I spoke with these girl scouts about how to look out for corporate greenwashing. They were pretty into it!
