The Green Living Guide is a Magbook – so the format is like that of a magazine – and although it initially seems a little expensive for something that looks just like a magazine you quickly find, on opening, that it contains an enormous amount of interesting and useful information. Even already determined eco-warriors should find something of interest in this wide-ranging guide.
The articles are well written – very accessible and in small enough chunks to take in over a cup of coffee or for a quiet five minutes in the bathroom! They don’t just tell you what you can do, but they explain why you should do it, which I think is important when it comes to environmental action. Many of the articles relate to money saving differences you can make relatively easily in your life, explaining how you can better insulate your home, shop more wisely for anything from eco-friendly electrical goods to make-up, baby accessories and clothing. The section on household chemicals was one that I found very interesting since my daughter has had skin allergy issues since she was born, so I try to use the bare amount of chemicals around her as possible.
