About this book

Account of an interesting attempt to live sustainably.

From the publisher's announcement:

How possible is it to have a 'normal life' - job, mortgage, kids, holidays - but at the same time be 'good' to the planet and the people around you? Leo Hickman though he'd find out. Material first appeared as a diary in Guardian Unlimited and then as regular fortnightly features in G2.

[UNK] 'Not a preachy guide but the diary of a struggle - through the myriad uses of bicarbonate of soda; instructions for assembling a wormery and a visit from three ethical auditors... There are plenty of facts and a selection of helpful letters - like the inspiring one from a woman who crochets her own dishcloths..' - Carol McDaid, Observer
