Be inspired to make simple changes to your daily habits and lifestyle. Green Living is a comprehensive guide packed with ideas, suggestions and tips to get you started.
“Any change you make to live a greener life helps make the world a cleaner, healthier and more beautiful place for all of its inhabitants. The best thing we can all do is learn, try and never give hope,” says Green Matters. “…while the biggest changes will have to come from the governments of the world, it is possible for each of us as individuals to make changes in our own lives that can have a meaningful impact on these formidable problems.”
In the introduction, the book’s mission is outlined – to make being green easy and accessible for all. You’ll learn how to reduce, reuse and recycle. Plus how to shrink waste and detox your life.
“We want to show you what to change in your own life that can make a real difference. The changes we as individuals can make are cumulative small acts that have profound impacts when enough people do them,” they say.
Each chapter details a specific environmental issue and what you can personally do to help make a difference. This includes a summary of small, medium and larger steps you can take in your daily life. If you are interested in knowing more about composting, eco-friendly cleaning, organising, beauty and sustainable fashion, Green Living has you covered. Whether you are just getting started or looking to add more eco-friendly hacks into your routine, there’s something for everyone. I’ve picked up plenty of tips for our home and know Green Living will be a regularly thumbed through reference.
