Dress designers, key media, green protagonists and some of the top brands and people in the eco industry were all on hand at the Parlour Gallery above Ecostore in Freeman's Bay, Auckland, last night for the launch of environmental journalist Francesca Price's new book 'The Good Life', published by New Holland.

In keeping with the evening's green theme, drinks were provided by carbon zero certified winery Yealands, Phoenix and The Good Water Company and food by Kokako Organic, IE Produce, Naked Organics, Ceres, Retro Organics, Aroha Organic Goat Cheese, Green & Blacks and Cakes with a Conscience. Every guest also went home with an eco 'goodie' bag brimming with organic products.

After arriving back in New Zealand from the UK, Francesca Price went in search of a greener and more sustainable existence back home and has written a practical but inspirational guide to help the everyday New Zealander access information that will show them how they too can live a more eco-friendly and fulfilling life.

'The Good Life' is available in all good book stores now, RRP $39.99.'
