The first time I came across Gunter Pauli was back in 2011 as he gave a conference talk. His thinking about solving mankind’s problems is unique which leads to amazing solutions.

The Blue Economy

In The Blue Economy Pauli summarizes his findings and shows the reader how we can come to a circular economy in which waste from one industry becomes the input of another.

In a similar vein, Michael Braungart writes about in his book Cradle to Cradle. His approach is to combine the Green Economy and the Blue Economy. A came across this book after attending a conference where Mr. Braungart gave a talk. Intrigued by his speech, I bought his book and was not disappointed.

Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things

A thought-provoking book that will challenge your thinking as it did with mine.

One way of making a difference is to use the mycoremediation method to clean the earth and water from pollution. The following books go deeper into this topic.

Mycelium Running: How Mushroom Can Help Save the World

I first came across this book while visiting my first mushroom farm back in 2015 in Brazil while seeing a mushroom farm. Paul Stamets goes into detail about how the mycelium connects the world. It is definitely a great read.

If you want to dig deeper into the topic of mycoremediation than I can recommend the following book by Harbajan Singh to you. Singh has a Ph.D. in environmental engineering and is also a Registered Environmental Professional by the National Registry of Environmental Professionals.

Mycoremediation: Fungal Bioremediation

I got my hands on this book during my research on mycoremediation. It is an absolutely fantastic topic to study and you need a starting point. I choose to start my journey with this book.

Another great book about mushroom cultivation is the book Organic mushroom farming and mycoremediation by Tradd Cotter. Cotter is a microbiologist, professional mycologist, and organic gardener. He is the founder of Mushroom Mountain. His primary interest is in low-tech and no-tech cultivation strategies.

Organic mushroom farming and mycoremediation: Simple to Advanced and Experimental Techniques for Indoor and Outdoor Cultivation.

His explanations are simple and straight to the point. No BS. I learned a lot from this book and still using it.
