It's Never too Late to Fall in Love with your Life. ~ by Waylon H. Lewis
Everyday Buddhist tips for a mindful life's path: how to save the world and have a good time doing so.
Waylon H. Lewis' long-awaited second book follows his best-selling Things I would like to do with You, also available in this shop.
Like Things, this book is eco-printed, in the USA, and only available here at Elephant Shop.
It's Never too Late to Fall in Love with your Life is simple: with daily slogans, with commentary, to start your mornings off right. With a mix of everyday Buddhism, practical tips, humor, criticism, and mindful life lessons learned the hard way, this book distills everything you (or a young friend or loved one) might want to learn, the easy way.
between our endless hurrying.
Enjoy your coffee for-here.
Eat sitting down.
Don’t text and walk or drive.
Just text fully.
Presence is just one pause away.
Multitasking takes us away from the magic of this moment.
It’s never too late to fall in love with your life."
~ Waylon H. Lewis
It's important for books to be ethical. Both the words, and the form of the book itself, as well as for those who labor over it. So:
It'll also be cloth and plastic-free (most cloth covers nowadays are...plastic). Most non-cloth covers are plastic-layered.
It'll also be ink-free! No petroleum at all. I'm amazed at this. Algae, which sucks up carbon!
It'll also be printed locally. 46 blocks away. At a place that pays folks real living wages, and then some.
It'll be delivered without plastic-wrap around all the books, unlike most.
It'll be shipped plastic and styrofoam free, including even the tape, unlike most.
The paper is 100% recycled/pcw, and that's the least of it. It's the greenest paper (like Things Forest edition) I've ever used.
The paper will be carbon negative, and will actually plant upwards of 100 more trees before we're done.
It's important for marketing to be honest, about connection, not suckering. So here's honest:
The glue will be the least toxic available, far better than most.
The gold foil isn't recyclable, or compostable, but it is gorgeous. That's the only element that isn't super eco-responsible that we haven't found a solution around.
More good news: it'll be Smyth-sewn, making it nearly glue free. Old school.
The paper cuts down no trees at all, actually: it's chlorine-free, sustainably-harvested, Green Seal, Forest Stewardship Council and Rainforest Alliance-certified paper via Neenah Conservation. It’s 100% pcw & domestically manufactured. USA printed and bound.
It'll be Amazon-free.
