About this book

Crammed with tips specifically for students, this handy guide makes it easy to do all those things you know you should. Zero cash, student accommodation, and a busy social life present their own challenges to green living, but from finding free stuff that doesn't harm the environment to lobbying for improved recycling facilities, Kate Aydin makes being green easy and affordable.

A comprehensive guide that covers the key aspects of student life. Aydin's breakdown into different grades of action, coupled with handy tips, background information, and links to additional resources shows how easy it can be to make a real difference.
- Caroline Lucas, Leader of the Green Party of England and Wales

"Through their actions and their campaigns, students today can balance their understandable anger at the failures of older generations with the determination to do their own bit for the environment. And this is the place to find out how!"
- Jonathon Porrit, writer and environmentalist, also Chairman of the UK Sustainable Development Commission
