Good Housekeeping's view...

January 2010 Good Housekeeping selection.

The road to greener living is paved with sustainably sourced flagstones and earnest intentions. Make this the year you follow through on at least some of your resolve (and stay budget-aware) with Ms Harris’s guilt-free and eminently do-able guidance to makedoing and mending, green laundering and the sound looking after of your home. This nicely packaged little book gets to the heart of the matter – whether it be enticing you to dabble a tad in some home-grown veg and herbs or explaining how to be planet-aware as you party – with unadulterated encouragement.

Synopsis

Ms. Harris's Book of Green Household Management: The Essential Thrift Bible by Caroline Harris

By making a few simple changes to our homes and lifestyles, Caroline Harris shows that going green is good for the environment and our wallets. With a wealth of creative tips, Caroline revives traditional household skills, such as sewing, growing vegetables and making jam, and encourages us to live within our means. Practical, not preachy, Ms Harris's Book of Green Household Management presents a rounded view of how to run a home in the real world. This guide feels like having a friend to hand in your kitchen and it's perfect for anyone who is daunted by the choices we need to make to live a more sustainable life.
