Everyday tips for effecting change in one handy guide, from the New York Times-bestselling authors of Me to We.

After fifteen years travelling the country and advocating for social justice, Craig and Marc Kielburger became inspired to give you the practical tools to do one world-changing, but not life-changing, act every day. The result is a beautifully designed, extensively researched, and engaging book - just for Canadians.

Laid out with dynamic illustrations and clear, everyday tips, Living Me to We provides easy steps for anyone who wants to lead a more socially conscious lifestyle or who''s had even the slightest urge to start. Here are facts and best practices for how to recycle your cellphone, conserve water and energy, make ethical investments, seek out carbon-friendly vacations, and get involved in the community.

Through interviews of Canadians across the country, you''ll meet the people in your community who are taking small steps to a better world. You''ll also get to know a new side of famous Canadians, such as Margaret Atwood, Rick Hansen, and George Stroumboulopoulos, as they recount their personal tales of lighter living. Finally, a resource guide lists websites, books, magazines, and city-specific stores and organizations to start your own movement.
