LoveReading Expert Review of Everyday Ways to Save Our Planet

This personal, picture-packed, practical guide to saving the planet is delivered in lucid, inspirational style.

With over 200 “sustainable swaps” for families to implement, Everyday Ways to Save Our Planet by TV meteorologist Laura Tobin is a personal, practical and achievable guide to countering climate change.

Written in response to many people feeling overwhelmed by what they can personally do to make a difference, Tobin takes us back to basics by breaking down the science in clear terms, before explaining how we can all do our bit to have a collective big impact, and it’s all underpinned by an inclusive can-do outlook: “My philosophy is that no one can do everything, but everyone can do something”.

Sharing anecdotes from her own family's experiences, Tobin takes readers through areas of everyday life — from energy, water and transport, to how we manage our bathrooms, gardens and kitchens. Alongside fact files and infographics that make for sobering reading, we're presented with fixes to habits that hurt the environment. We can, for example, all easily brew our tea better, bathe better, and buy better.

In short, Everyday Ways to Save Our Planet is an informative and welcoming step-by-step resource for anyone who isn’t sure how to start living their best eco-friendly life.

Everyday Ways to Save Our Planet Synopsis

TV meteorologist Laura has been a climate-change campaigner for the past 10 years. She knows all too well how devastating its effects can be – and how overwhelmed people feel as they wonder how they can help. The two questions she gets asked the most are, ‘What can I do?’ and ‘Will it make a difference?’ And her answer to those is, ‘Lots – and yes!’

In this book, Laura breaks down the science of climate change in a way that’s easy to understand. She explains how we know humans are to blame, what exactly a ‘tipping point’ is and why that 1.5 degrees of difference really matters. Then, covering all aspects of everyday life – from the food we eat, the clothes we wear, the way we travel and even the way we celebrate – Laura gives practical advice on how we can live more sustainably and reduce our impact on the environment. Many of the ideas are simple, free, and can be put into action without disrupting our current lives too much.

Along the way, Laura writes honestly about her own experiences of living a more eco-friendly life – from the things she found easy to change to the habits of a lifetime that were more difficult to shake off. You’ll also find out how her husband and daughter have adapted – or not!

This book is for you if you don't know where to start and need practical advice on how you can help save the planet from someone who is not going to make you feel too guilty. Laura’s not telling you to never fly again, become a vegan or give up your car, but she will show how you can make small changes in every area of your life. Laura’s message is that no one can do everything, but everyone can do something – so let’s start a ripple and make a wave of change.
