Caroline Kennedy’s daughter, Tatiana Schlossberg, has written a book on the ways our everyday choices impact the planet.
Inconspicuous Consumption: The Environmental Impact You Don't Know You Have is divided into four sections - the internet and technology, food, fashion, and fuel - and delves into how the seemingly innocent choices we make in these areas negatively impact the environment.
The 29-year-old former New York Times science reporter explains the complicated issue that is climate change and how everything we do is connected (and potentially harmful) to the earth. The book empowers readers to think about their lifestyle in a new way, helping them make informed choices.
"I want people to understand the seriousness and scope of the problem, but I don't want people to feel total despair," she told Vogue. "I want people to feel they can do things. They may not be easy things, but the possibility of change exists."
The book, which is written in a humorous, self-deprecating tone, is meant to be “accessible” says the author.
“Just because this subject is important doesn't mean it can't be interesting and fun to learn about. That's a problem for climate journalism: It's always so serious and scary. And it is. But we also have to find a way to live with it. So I wanted to make it like: this is part of your life. How can we learn about it in a way that doesn't make us want to crawl into a hole?”
