Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Your home can be ecofriendly in many small ways, maintains well-known BBC radio presenter Grace, who shows here how to sustain a green lifestyle, from cleaning and personal care to holiday celebration. Her tone is perky and encouraging throughout. However, the text has not been translated for the U.S. audience, prices are in pounds, and the overwhelming list of web pages and companies are all British. Too bad, really, since the book teems with great advice on simplifying your life and your home, being conscientious consumers and buying green, and promoting fair trade and sustainable resources. While a gem overseas, this is a marginal purchase in the United States.
