Product description


"A fascinating study which proves that waste is aplenty in our consumer society." (The Independent)

"Free is part squatting guide, part diary and is loaded with statistics. Sometimes it feels as if Hibbert has counted every Pret A Manger sandwich that ended up in a landfill. Her anger at the waste of consumer society is relentless.Over the past year, we have focused on the fall of the bankers, but Free is a reminder that the recession has had an equally dramatic effect on those several rungs below them on the financial ladder." (The Telegraph)

"In this account of her varied, and largely positive, experiences, Hibbert paints a detailed and often funny self-portrait of a young Londoner who sneaks fox-like around her city, managing to survive off its detritus for a whole year, affording her the time to appreciate her choices and her relative youth more fully than had she stayed in her "cosy, domesticated rut" (Times Litarary Supplement)

"Her book is a passionate plea against the rubbish society. It might not be free, but it's worth reading even if you don't find it in a skip." (ROOF - Shelter's Housing Magazine)
