How do the everyday choices you make affect animals and the environment? This book looks at all the things you can do to live cruelty free.

It's a guide for older children and teenagers concerned about animals, wildlife and the planet we live on.

Packed with information on how to live a cruelty-free life, it includes sections on:

Using your spending power. The choices we make - what to eat, what to buy, what to wear - and how these affect animals. Asking questions and reading labels.

Cruelty-free fashion and beauty.

What's on your plate? Being vegetarian or vegan, or just eating less meat? What impact can your diet have on cruelty and on the environment?

Should you have a pet? If so, would your pet choose you as its owner? Points to consider before bringing an animal into your home.

Animals on show. Do zoos and animal parks look after animals or exploit them? Good zoos and their important conservation work.

Watching wild animals. Watching and learning about wildlife - building an appreciation of nature and helping your mental wellbeing.

Love those bugs! Many people are squeamish about insects, but these creatures are vital to ecosystems.

Don't throw it away - there is no away. Simple things everyone can do to avoid waste: recycling, re-using, choosing plastic-free. Resist the throwaway culture.

Where do you draw your line? What can you realistically achieve? Some of the difficulties, especially if family / friends don't agree with you. What are the best (and worst) ways of influencing others? How to feel confident with your decisions.

How to handle everyday situations and counter arguments.

Campaigning - anti-cruelty organisations to support. The power of protest.

This book will help you to live as cruelty-free as possible and to examine all of the areas in your life where you can help animals and the environment.

Choose to live without cruelty. Choose this book and find out how.
