Arizona Champion for Green Living Launches First Book
Gina Murphy-Darling, a.k.a. “Mrs. Green
Gina Murphy-Darling, a.k.a. “Mrs. Green,” host of the radio program Mrs. Green’s World, has launched her debut book, Your Mother Called (Mother Earth)…You’d better call her back!, carrying Murphy-Darling’s passionate message of respect for Mother Earth to the public.
Taking on her radio show personality of Mrs. Green, Murphy-Darling identifies many of today’s incredible environmental challenges and offers one woman’s solutions on aiming to live in ways to help preserve the planet. The book presents more than 120 pages of practical, humorous, and personal insights that reveal the many not-so-earth-friendly practices of modern day life, and shows readers simple ways to learn more about the issues and act more sustainably.
Murphy-Darling’s journey began in the rainforests of Peru at a conference on preservation. She launched her Tucson-based radio show, Mrs. Green Goes Mainstream, in 2008, and it quickly grew a following through her website, blog, newsletter, and social media. The show is now followed by thousands of listeners around the world, and has grown to include a weekly podcast, Mrs. Green’s World, which is carried on six radio networks—including the Iglu Radio app—that is downloaded in 29 countries across the globe.
The book marks another milestone in Murphy-Darling’s quest to educate people about the real and lasting negative impacts on our planet. From listing the dangers of fracking to discussing the harmful effects of chemicals in food and cleaning products to tips on greener ways to entertain, the book’s aim is to motivate people to ‘wake up and smell the roses’—while there are still roses to smell.
