Green is good – smart ways to live well and save the planet

Published by HarperCollins.

Long before it was hip to be vegetarian or zero waste I wrote this book to help you to prioritise what matters most when trying to live a more sustainable life.

Over the next few years the choices you make will have an enormous impact. But out of the mountain of conflicting information, how do you know which choices are the right ones?

I asked myself the same question many years ago when I was living in the Cook Islands as an Australian Volunteer International.

The answer astonished me. Forget shopping bags and recycling – the biggest hit is beef. Huge amounts of water, land degradation, and more carbon than cars!

It turns out reducing our environmental impact doesn’t have to be so hard – we just need to focus our energies on things that matter. Green is Good shows you what they are and gives you lots of practical, big-impact actions that will fit your lifestyle – without the guilt
