"A timely gem of a book full of positive inspiration and practical tips for greener, budget-friendly living."
If there was ever a moment that calls for simple and sustainable life hacks, it is now. With the rising cost of living, not to mention the rising sea levels, even the smallest changes to how we live can make a big difference to our bank balances – and, collectively, the climate crisis. Which is exactly why Elizabeth Ajao’s charming guidebook will strike a chord with so many. Covering aspects of life including travel, gardening, clothing and cosmetics, Ajao’s hacks swing from more obvious ways to reduce your carbon footprint and plastic usage, to the ingenious repurposing of household items like hardback books and chopsticks! As well as the practicality, there’s a real nostalgia to many of the tips shared – you forget quite how much can be achieved on the cleaning front with just lemon juice and baking soda in your armoury. And despite the seriousness of the real crisis underlying the need for the book, the tone never strays from positive or encouraging. Planet-Friendly Hacks is exactly the book we need in communal spaces at work, at home or even in schools; it’s easy to digest and perfect for dipping in and out of for inspiration. And if it encourages everyone who picks it up to make even one small change to how they live, it will have succeeded in helping the planet feel that little bit more looked after.
