This book tackles the daily choices we make that have global impact: Coffee, Chocolate, Cars, Food, Clothes, Waste and Debt, in that order. Clawson does a great job of making each topic personal with a short vignette related to the topic, then breaks down the injustices that many of our choices make through informative facts, stats and stories. She always concludes with practical action steps and then a host of resources to check out on each topic.
It's really well written, easy to read and extremely tangible. Relevant to recent current events, the chapter on debt has an incredible summary of the historical injustices Haiti has suffered in it's time.

The book re-energized me to tackle some of the daily choices I make and try to make some small changes.

A clear, challenging, and action-oriented look at how an every-day American might live more justly and in tune with her neighbors, whether they be next door or across the world. The chapters include topics such as cars, coffee, chocolate, and waste, and suggest small to life-changing steps anyone can take. The text makes a strong case for Christians' responsibilities for social justice. ( )

I’ve been thinking more and more about the ways my daily choices impact the world — especially people and the environment. People (I’m thinking Christians who are politically conservative) may consider these “bleeding heart liberal” sort of issues and therefore be inclined ignore them, but Clawson approaches them from a Christian perspective, showing that our daily choices are one way we show love to God, his people, and his creation. She shows how our small choices about food and clothing and the cars we drive and trash and debt can all be ways we can impact others and the world we live in.

I love that she starts out telling readers not to panic. The problems in the world can seem so overwhelming that it may seem easier to just do nothing. I kept thinking, how can little ol’ me make any difference at all? Yes, when we all make small choices we can really make a difference. But even if your choices really don’t put a dent in anything, they are still glorifying to God. We are saying we value the things that are important to him; namely, his people. It’s like praying or giving or fasting — you do these things for God. Yes, the impact is felt elsewhere, but they are primarily for God and God alone. Our daily choices can be seen in the same light.

Making some choices are easier than others for me. Buying local produce that hasn’t been coated in pesticides and picked by slaves — that’s an easier choice. Getting a reusable cup to use at Starbucks — simple. Clothing, on the other hand, is harder. Target and Old Navy take up most of the room in my closet, yet both companies have been accused of violating the human rights of people making their clothes. Can I sacrifice by buying fewer items at a higher cost from more reputable companies? This is a very difficult choice for me.

Overall, I highly recommend this book. It doesn’t scare off readers with crazy statistics and end-of-the-world predictions. Clawson takes everyday people and shows how their everyday choices impact people and the environment. It’s very accessible and may quell some of those “Christian” naysayers who say that God gave us “dominion” over the earth, so we can treat it however we want. Instead, it shows how we need to be good stewards over something God has entrusted to us — meaning both the environment, and his people living in it.
