However, when we found out that a coupon book specifically for East Bay eco-minded businesses, organic food, restaurants, sustainable living services, and entertainment was on its way to our little forgotten corner of the bay, we called up the folks in charge and asked for a review copy.

So yes, we got The EcoMetro Guide for free, saving $20 off the bat. But for you dear readers, we will tally the extent of the savings below, so you can consider whether it’s worth the investment.

What you get:

The first 40+ pages of The EcoMetro Guide are a bit of a mishmash: Some interviews with local eco-minded folk, some basic advice on living the green life that perhaps you might peruse while riding the bus?

For us, it’s all about the coupons.
