Overview


Are muddy carrots worth the hassle? Can a natural deodorant survive a salsa class? Will clothes swapping ever replace clothes shopping? A humorous, inspirational, and practical guide for anyone venturing into a greener world.
 

Two years ago Kate Lock set herself a series of eco-challenges to find out the answers to such questions as Locally produced pesticides or far-flung organic? Cheap whole chicken or two organic drumsticks? The kitchen roll that soaks up spills or the recycled stuff that dissolves? What can one really do to make a difference? Does it involve huge sacrifices? Is it a lot of extra work? Is it more expensive? This book charts the story of how she and her family adjusted—their failures and successes. Grittily realistic about the ups and downs of living in a more eco-friendly style, she manages to combine the practical with the inspirational, taking on the big brands and giving readers the facts. Packed full of great tips, it takes readers through a set of personal green challenges and explains how to make a difference while staying sane. From kicking her supermarket habit to composting her kitchen waste, Kate's confessions are witty and down-to-earth.
