About this book

Identical twin brothers Andy and Dave Hamilton live in the centre of Bristol. Attracted to the pub and music scene of the bustling city, they still yearn for elements of 'the good life'. So ever since they were students, they have used their initiative and imagination to think up ways to live in a frugal and self-sufficientish way, while still enjoying life to the full. Having set up their website in 2004, they discovered that their approach and ethos touched a nerve with thousands of people in the UK.

Andy and Dave, Britain's 'green twins', advocate a fun and positive approach to environmentalism, and understand that the thought of adjusting every aspect of our lives is overwhelming and possibly offputting. Hence self-sufficientish. If you don't have the space or time to be totally self-reliant, but crave creative ideas for recycling, growing organic vegetables and establishing an environmentally friendly home office, this is the book for you. You'll find small suggestions to get you started (not overfilling your kettle, choosing alternative kitchen-cleaning products and tackling an allotment for the first time) and bigger ones for when your confidence grows (making a solar oven from a used pizza carton, advice on keeping chickens and establishing a 'green' nursery for your children), as well as recipes, herbal remedies, eco-friendly travel solutions and much much more.
