The New Green Consumer Guide

The Real World   

Lovereading view...

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..

Due to the format of this book we will not be featuring an extract for download but you may view some video podcasts by Julia Hailes by clicking here.

Synopsis

The New Green Consumer Guide by Julia Hailes

Green consumerism is on the rise, but many of us are confused by an avalanche of information - much of it conflicting. We want to do the right thing to help save energy and resources, but where can we start as everyday consumers? Can we do anything to make a difference? Julia Hailes, environmental expert and co-author of the original Green Consumer Guide (Gollancz, 1988), is adamant that we can.

The New Green Consumer Guide is accessible and reader-friendly, addressing all the questions the general consumer is asking, giving authoritative advice on a wide range of issues, explaining which products, brands and companies are getting it right - and which ones are getting it wrong. With clearly presented sections on home and garden, food and drink, electrical goods and the office, plus travel, transport, fashion and cosmetics, it is written with today's lifestyles in mind. With full-colour pages and illustrations throughout, and with scores of tips, checklists and ideas, The New Green Consumer Guide offers real, affordable solutions to the world's most-talked-about challenge. It will be the only guide to greener living that busy consumers will need.
