Book of the Month – Live Green: 52 steps for a more sustainable life by Jen Chillingsworth

Is your New Year's Resolution to live a more sustainable life?  This practical guide offers loads of inspiration for shopping, creating, and living greener.  Helping you to use what you have, make use of what you don’t, and most importantly reducing our consumption of plastics and our carbon footprint.  

‘There is no such thing as away, when we throw anything away it must go somewhere.’
- Annie Leonard

Most of us are already doing our bit to help the planet.  Ditching the single use plastics, going vegan or shopping organic.  But we are often left feeling like what we are doing isn't enough to really make a difference.  It can feel overwhelming, to know where to begin and how else we can help.  This pocket-sized handy guide makes it easy.  Breaking it down into sections, and step by step.  It inspires us to think greener in areas of our lives we might not have considered before including;

  • Food
  • Home and fashion
  • Cleaning
  • Shopping
  • Natural beauty and skincare
  • Christmas and events

This is a great read if you are completely new to the sustainability game and don’t know where to start.  Short, simple tips, recipes and ideas with illustrations.  It will also help inspire you to get creative with items you might already have in your home.  This book provides alternatives to replacing some of your favourite products, that are not only better for the planet, but also cheaper in price.

Read this book if:

  • You want to live a more sustainable life and don’t know where to start or how to take the next step.
  • You want inspiration on working with more natural ingredients and how to get creative with things you already own.
  • You want to educate others on how they can live more sustainably
