Book – Living Green Effortlessly

It is plain old common sense: you want your home to look great, feel great, and perform great. Is it even possible to do all three—without breaking the bank? Yes!

In the award-winning Living Green Effortlessly: Simple Choices for a Better Home, Marla Esser Cloos shows you how to make your home green—whether you live in a small apartment in the big city or a brand new single-family home in the suburbs. From integrating smart technology into your home (it’s easier than you think!) to planting a rain garden, there are all kinds of ways to live greener.

“Your book has made it practical for others to learn in a way that’s not intimidating at all. This is a resource that my husband and I plan on giving to prospective clients and placing in our housewarming package for new homeowners.”

– Abby Landry, Vice President, JL Builders Co
