Waterstones Says

Presented in bite-sized chunks ideal for dropping into a busy day, Gale's wonderful collection of tips and tricks shows how easy it is to make a difference to the health of the planet.

Easy, do-able, down to earth ideas and suggestions for everyone to help save the planet. If you want to save the planet, but your to-do list is already pretty long and remembering your re-usable coffee cup feels like a Herculean task, then this is the book for you.

Covering every aspect of our lives from the stuff we buy and the food we eat to how we travel, work, and celebrate, this book provides stacks of practical, down to earth ideas to slot into your daily life, alongside a gentle kick up the butt to put your newfound knowledge into action.

Practical tips include unsubscribing from all the tempting emails that drop into your inbox with details of the newest clothing range or the latest sale, and keeping a mug next to your kettle to work out how much water you actually need to boil each time, as over-filling kettles costs British households GBP68 million on energy bills each year.

Find out how to fit "sustainable living" into your life, in a way that works for you. Change your impact without radically changing your life and figure out the small steps you can make that will add up to make a big difference (halo not included).

I loved this book - a non judgemental, fun, inspiring approach to how we can do our bit for the planet, whilst acknowledging that we are all human! Full of practical tips and advice - this is a brilliant book for anyone with climate anxiety. - Thomasina Miers OBE - Masterchef winner, writer, environmentalist, television presenter, cook and co-founder of the Wahaca chain of Mexican street food restaurants.

The most family friendly way to start doing your bit - The Sunday Times

This user-friendly book offers plenty of practical guidelines about how we can live more sustainable lives — and save money at the same time ... From turning off our household products — devices on standby cost UK households £227m per annum — to being mindful of all the food we waste, a more sustainable way of life seems to be easy to attain. - Irish Independent

How do you throw a sustainable party? How do you integrate sustainability into family life? In her practical guide, Gale answers these questions and so many more - Red
