Earth Day Audiobooks
Living Sustainably: Earth Day Audiobooks

Earth has many names: Gaia, Papa, Tonantzin, Asase Yaa. However, we all call this great blue ball in the sky home. Our duty as permanent residents is to treat this life-giving entity with the care it deserves. Earth Day is a special day to celebrate the depths of the sea, the icy glaciers, the mighty mountains, and the glorious flora while discussing the threat of climate change and how we can work together to keep our world safe. Because every day should be one where we take care of our planet.

On any morning, you might wake up and shower with water, make your coffee, flush your toilet with water, and think nothing of it. But around the world, more than three-quarters of a billion people can’t do any of that—because they have no clean water source near their homes. In The Worth of Water, Gary White and Matt Damon invite us to match hope with resources, empower families and communities, and end the global water crisis for good.

“Matt and Gary’s vision is clear, their strategy is smart and effective, and their faith in their fellow human beings is at the heart of everything they do.”– President Bill Clinton

“A glimpse into how consumerism, slowed to a less ferocious pace, might be reconciled with sustainability.”—The New Yorker

We live on a planet alive with song, music, and speech. David Haskell explores how these wonders came to be in Sounds Wild and Broken.

Coral reefs are a microcosm of our planet: extraordinarily diverse, deeply interconnected, and full of wonders. But corals across the planet are in the middle of an unprecedented die-off, beset by warming oceans, pollution, damage by humans, and a devastating pandemic. Life on the Rocks is an inspiring, lucid, meditative ode to the coral reefs and the undaunted scientists working to save them against almost impossible odds.

“Dazzling…Life on the Rocks shimmers with radiant prose, sending out rays of hope for the future of coral reefs.”–BookPage

Fire and Flood show how devilishly effective moneyed climate-change deniers have been at slowing and even reversing the progress of our collective awakening. When a threat means certain but future disaster, but addressing it means losing present-tense profit, capitalism’s response has been sadly predictable. The audiobook will show us a path back from the cliff, but we must pick up the pace.

Part biography, part guidebook to the contemporary environmental movement, Girls Who Green the World is an inspired collection of profiles featuring environmental changemakers, social entrepreneurs, visionaries, and activists. This audiobook is the perfect gift for future and current activists and changemakers!

“A celebration of women who are devoted to reducing the impact of climate change in a variety of creative ways.”–Kirkus
