cover of book

We are becoming increasingly aware and engaged in environmental issues, but it’s not always clear what the solutions are and how we can do our bit.

In this friendly guide, you are shown how you can make changes in a positive and practical manner, and with some suggestions easier than others, there’s a multitude of ways in which you can live more sustainably.

Siân looks at the choices we can all make, helping you to reduce your carbon footprint and the impact of your lifestyle on the planet and change the world without changing your life.

The 50 ways are divided into Plastics, Energy, Cooking and Eating, Travel, In the Garden and Action, and include a range of options, such as buying plastic-free beauty products, upcycling your furniture, cutting down on meat and having greener celebrations.


“You have more power than you think – both as a consumer and a citizen – so don’t accept any limitations you find in what you can do to help the planet.”

“Who better to give advice on being greener than Sian Berry, Green member of the London Assembly and Co-Leader of the Green Party?”

“Really good quick read and lots of useful tips. I particularly found the home and garden stuff useful and interesting! “
