About this book

Ever wondered how you can be green with glamour? Or how to make the very best of life and feel virtuous too?

"How Green Are My Wellies?" describes Anna's efforts to live a life that is both fun and sparkly green. And whether growing vegetables, throwing a clothes-swap party, concocting natural potions, or green speed-dating, she proves that being planet-friendly is surprisingly liberating, enriching, and it may even make you laugh. Month by month, Anna explores everything from avocado cleansers to guerrilla gardening to worm-racing in order to perfect the art of being green. Here are the tricks to slimming your waste in January; mastering cool camping in July; and celebrating the joy and satisfaction of making things at home as the evenings draw in.

Charged with infectious enthusiasm, her yearbook is full of new ideas, reveals brilliant 'eco-cheats' for lazier moments, and demonstrates unequivocally that you can be green with style.
