There are some really interesting facts and figures as well as solutions to living a 'greener' life in this updated guide. Along with the things most of us probably know by now such as buying energy saving light bulbs, and washing at lower temperatures there are some enlightening gems such as plastic bags vs. paper bags. We are all very concerned about using plastic bags now, with the media getting very much on board, but paper bags can be unfriendly to the environment too. They are heavier than plastic bags and take up 10 times more space in landfill and even bio-degradable things give off CO2 once broken down. To find out more of these interesting facts then invest in this book to make your life a greener one..
