Why we need this book

We have both been moving towards a more eco friendly lifestyle for a while now, and we know how daunting it can be.  If you are wondering “Where should I start?” or “Can I afford it?” or “Is it going to be time consuming and difficult?” this is the solution for you. We have chosen things you can do that take very little planning or materials, with minimal cost that will take you a step nearer sustainability.

Because plastic is one of the hardest things to cut out of life this book comes with a tracker to help you notice what you might want to change and a list of alternatives for day to day plastic.

You will find space to write your own plan for the future and a worksheet for each of these things to do. They are suitable for everyone though some are more child friendly than others:
