“Vasil’s new book is the big fat bible of all things healthy and green in this country. Her plucky style is what makes Ecoholic Body so compelling that you won’t put it down. She uses an endearing, straight-shooting tell-it-like-it-really-is method to call out greenwashers and industry posers across the board….a fascinating and fun ride.”

“This book is for people who want to do something to lighten their impact on the planet. The small steps cost us little in the way of effort, money or time, but the cumulative effects can be enormous.”
–– DAVID SUZUKI

“Everything you need to know to make green, non-toxic, Earth-friendly consumer choices – and to be a bang-up planetary citizen – is in this book. Its comprehensiveness is mind-boggling! My fondest hope is that a well-thumbed copy becomes a fixture in every Canadian home.”
–– RICK SMITH, Executive Director, Environmental Defence

“Adria Vasil puts everything you need to know about living a greener, healthier life into one entertaining volume. It is thorough, cheeky, fun and damn useful.”

“A sassy eco-bible.”
–– WISH MAGAZINE

“Consider this your sacred text when it comes to making any life decision, from as small as what cup of java to pick up in the morning to what type of Christmas tree is “greener”, fake or real, and everything in between.”

“Vasil has created a warm, cheeky and practical guide. Ecoholic doesn’t urge the reader to move to the woods and eat algae and lichen but she does offer some pragmatic advice. Cleverly illustrated and written with a healthy sense of humour, the book covers pretty much every aspect of everyday modern life. Vasil doesn’t shy away from the ugly truth — she discusses toxins in makeup or in home-renovation supplies, for instance — but she also offers a treasure trove of proactive and positive solutions.”
