Consultant Shares Stories of Sustainability in New Book


BEVERLY, MASS.—Olive Designs, LLC has released its new book, “One Green Deed Spawns Another: Tales of Inspiration on the Quest for Sustainability.” The book is a chronical of author David Mahood’s 20-year effort to better understand the importance of sustainability and the environment.

The author’s quest for sustainability led him on a wide ranging and introspective journey that included encounters with a diverse group of people. From turtle rescuers to hemp designers, from foresters to worm farmers, from renowned ecologists to Seneca historians, his 20-year journey is chronicled in a story of environmental compassion and awareness. In an effort to make sense of it all, he revisited many of the sources of his inspiration and asked them: If you had one green deed you’d like to see heeded, adopted, and passed on, what would it be and why?

One Green Deed Spawns Another is available for order through local and indie bookstores throughout the United States. The author is currently scheduling readings and signings at selected bookstores around the country.
