Product Description

About the Author

Richard Hallows has almost no Green credentials whatsoever, which is what makes him perfect to write this book. He is not an earnest bearded cyclist who eschews all forms of personal hygiene for the benefit of the planet. He has, however, determined a personal incentive to reduce the footprint he has on the planet, and that means going green against his will, and despite having several very good reasons why he shouldn't do it.

For a read it's great, to educate you'd need someone who never watched the news, read a book and never listened to other people. Some of you may have recognised this person. It's an ipod wearing teenager usually sat behind you on the bus. For the rest of us some of it is funny but borrow rather than invest

I guess I've already stated my case as I've endorsed this book but really its so up my street - and yoursI bet. Hilariously funny at times, very realistic and honest but without being too 'worthy' Somehow reading of his personal experiences makes you want to btry a bit harder to be 'green' but you don't feel you're being preached at.

Format: Paperback
This book is a diary of a rather silly bloke's year attempting to be less of a blot on the planet. He does an electricity audit to see how much he is spending, and is surprised to find that turning off permanently on-charge power tools and laptops saves electricity, as does turning off lights in unused rooms and drying clothes outside rather than in the tumble dryer. He lives in Surrey but has a four wheel drive, although at least he's going to minimise the use of it. He is also going to make the big effort to wash out cans for recycling rather than lazily throw them in the bin.

He also learns to buy loose fruit and veg rather than lots of packaging, and not to buy so much rubbish for his kids. The whole book is really a statement of the extremely obvious - and becomes even more annoying when he decides to go for a 'green' energy tariff as windfarms are a good idea. Unless the wind farm is in your line of sight.

Don't buy it, borrow it as you'll want to throw it across the room.
