Sustainability is such a simple principle - living considerately and respectfully of our earth and all living beings. Yet in real life it affects every choice we make, the food we eat, the clothes we wear, how we travel, the energy we use and, absolutely everything we buy. Everything in our life impacts others through its creation, its distribution, its use and its disposal. Others are out there suffering or thriving - based on our choices. It can feel a bit overwhelming, but whether you are already familiar with all the ins and outs of a sustainable lifestyle or just want to start - this is the book for you! Sustainable fashion and lifestyle expert Marieke Eyskoot makes green and ethical living fun and doable. She covers the right brands, inspiring insights, surprising facts and useful solutions, exactly what we need to inform ourselves about living more sustainably.

 

 

Okay, not to stress anyone out, but in case you haven’t heard, the planet isn’t doing too great. The climate is in crisis and we’re running out of time to fix it. We all know that something needs to be done, but most of us are at a loss as to what exactly that is. I mean, I’ve got a canvas shopping bag and a glass water bottle, what more can I do? Thankfully, the folks at Extinction Rebellion have put together this handbook to inspire exactly the kind of change the world needs. Put together in just 10 days (this is an emergency, people) this well laid out book features real, practical advice on how exactly we’re going to turn things around. With contributions from experts in science, activism and even sewing, this book couldn’t contain more practical and inspiring advice for environmentalists of all shapes and sizes. This isn’t just another book explaining the science behind climate change, or detailing the right way to recycle; this is a call to arms. We need to rise up and we need to rebel, and this book contains everything you need to know about how to do it.

“It is not enough that we build products that function, that are understandable and usable, we also need to build products that bring joy and excitement, pleasure and fun, and, yes, beauty to people’s lives.”
