Book Description

What does it mean to be green? And why do people say it isn't easy? What's the big deal and why isn't it something we all do all the time? Or is it?

If you've ever wondered whether your efforts at trying to live a greener lifestyle make the slightest bit of difference then this book is for you. If you get wound up when the green choice always seems to cost twice the price of the non-green option, then read on.

Going ‘green’ really doesn’t have to cost you money and, yes, it does make a difference. This book shows you 101 simple ways in which your family can live a little bit greener without it costing a penny. And it goes a lot further too, because, by following some of these straightforward tips, you will actually save money. Lots of money!

101 Ways gives you tips on how to reduce food waste, how to save water, how to save energy and fuel and how to reuse and recycle your stuff. It gives you the science and maths behind these efforts and clearly shows why and how doing all this green stuff is worthwhile.

You might be greener than you think. Or you might need a bit more of a nudge to get you on the right track. Either way, there's something in these pages that's just what you need. Just take a peek and we'll soon have you greener than Kermit the Frog.

Go on...you know you want to...find out how you can start the green revolution in your home today!

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming AND green? - Unlikely, but true. 15 Jan. 2013
Format:Paperback
I don't consider myself to be particularly green. And usually any book (or person...) suggesting to me 101 ways I should be doing something, whatever it was, would get very short shrift. Yet this book achieves something I would have thought highly unlikely - it makes lots of suggestions re. what I should or should not be doing, yet somehow manages to charm me at the same time. It's partially the simple yet appealing style of writing, partly the amusing illustrations and partly the fact that it actually contains an awful lot of common sense. Will I be implementing all the suggestions contained? No - I won't be putting my aluminium foil through the diswasher so that it can be used 3 or 4 times, or boiling up carrot tops and vegetable peelings. But I will be emptying the ash from my woodburning stove and the contents of my hoover into the compost bin, and using old perfume or body spray as a room freshener and charging my mobile in the car from now on. And various others as well. My favourites? 'If I have flat lemonade I use it for flowers. They like the sugar!' And 'the droppings from our sheep and their leftover hay are used as fertilizer in our banana plantation'. Now where did I leave that banana plantation of mine...........?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read 19 Dec. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
A great guide for people who want to do their bit to be greener on a daily basis and also help save our planet for future generations in the process.
There are plenty of ideas in this book that make sense and they are easy to follow. I reckon you could save a fortune just by picking just half a dozen or so of these tips. I'm certainly going to follow a number of them starting with the easiest first and then tackling the habit changing ones. Most of them are so simple I wonder why I've not thought of them before reading Anna's book

4.0 out of 5 stars Packed with really helpful and simple tips 12 Dec. 2012
By Clarky
Format:Kindle Edition
At last the book I've been waiting for: a no-nonsense, practical guide to recycling. Its easy-to-read, positive style would appeal, I think, to young readers but there's something for everyone here. What I liked most is that there's no `doom and gloom' preaching, just simple tips everyone can follow, the sort of thing that has you saying, `Why didn't I think of that?' And if we all do our bit- or only some of us! - we can make a difference, as Anna Pitt's `science bits' explain. Little things really do mean a lot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Practical help on saving the environment 15 Dec. 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If everyone followed just a few of the tips laid out in this easy-to-follow book, the world would be a better place, not only for us but for generations to come. The balance between hard fact and practical advice was achieved extremely well. I felt guilty {that I wasn't doing enough for the environment} and inspired {that I could do more} in equal measure. I read it through from start to finish, but you can just as easily use it as a reference guide to dip into. A great find!

Format:Kindle Edition
A superb book that simplifies, with a non-patronising style and flow, the whole "green living" landscape. The first thing that occurred to me was that this should be purchased by the Government and given out as a Public How-To guide for people. Impressive stuff to produce something that people would want to read but that also steers people gently into taking more personal responsibility for living. Superb!

5.0 out of 5 stars Something for everyone 18 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a fun book with something for everyone. It is an easy read for everyone above the age of 10 and possibly earlier for able readers. Each chapter contains an argument, some interesting Maths (don't groan - I hate Maths too, but this was easy to understand) and some cartoons. I have to say I loved the cartoons which makes things very clear and are memorable. I was glad to see we were already doing many of the things mentioned in the book but there were some we didn't. I'm going to unplug our phone chargers as we speak! This should be high on everyone's reading list if we care about the environment. Come on - let's save the planet!
