About this book

Do my shopping and eating habits really affect the health of the planet? What is biodiversity and what can I do to support it? What are greenhouse gases and are they affecting our climate? Can I conserve energy around the home and save money at the same time? These questions and countless more are answered in the helpful suggestions presented in "1001 Ways You Can Save the Planet".

A decade ago "recycling" was a mystery to many but today a new "three Rs" (reduce, reuse, recycle) is mainstream wisdom. A truly modern lifestyle means that you consider the most environmentally sound option before you clean, shop, cook, eat, relax, travel, and more. Whether it be in your home and garden, your workplace or community, the ultra-concise explanations, amazing facts and everyday nuggets of sage advice offered in this compact companion will capture your imagination and sharpen your desire to make your significant contribution. And who ever said that changing your way of living should not be great fun or less than straightforward?

"1001 Ways You Can Save the Planet" banishes piety and offers a positive and uplifting treasure trove of environmental advice, from the benefits of becoming a beekeeper to simple but easily overlooked measures such as re-using your birthday candles, avoiding stand-by mode on electrical appliances, drinking water from the main supply rather than bottled mineral water, skipping the weekend shave and putting a brick in the bathroom cistern. Fascinating throughout, this book reveals why we should, and how we can, make better and more sustainable use of the world's finite resources.
