1Planet Read

We love to read.

We love to talk and laugh...and get together with our friends. We bet you do too. So, we decided to pick a book a month related to our mission as the 1Planet Read. 

Grab the book and some friends, and host or join a monthly 1Planet book discussion. We want this to be a fun way that we can get together—even organize—in our neighborhoods and communities. We’d love to see photos of your gatherings. Post them on our Facebook page, or message us on Instagram and Twitter. #1Planetread

1planet read for february

Our inaugural 1Planet book of the month is: Lab Girl, by Hope Jahren.  
Geobiologist Hope Jahren writes a very accessible, funny, and insightful book about her life as a scientist who studies plants. She invites us all to be scientists with her in discovery and appreciation of the natural world. She also shares her personal challenges, and we see her struggle, but revel in her strength. Her voice reminds us a little of Cheryl Strayed in Wild. We think this strong woman who has dedicated her life to science and the natural world, while keeping it real, is the perfect first book for our 1Planet Read. 

“A scientific memoir that’s beautifully human.” —Popular Science
