This book is a great guide to being greener. It covers the reasons why we all need to be greener without going into a long, dull lecture about the environment. It has plently of tips and advice for saving energy in the home, in the kitchen, at work and even when travelling. The advice is also aimed at saving money too, so the tips start small and it doesn't tell you to renovate your whole house with energy efficient insulation and the like. There are plenty of headings so the information is clear and easy to get to the bit you want if you're just dipping in and out of it. A great book with easy to follow advice on being more environmentally friendly and saving money in the process. Recommended.
