About the book
Your Life Your Planet gives you practical steps to make that possible. How to:
- nurture your soul before breakfast,
- calm down before bed,
- discover the hidden treasures in your community and
- live your best life while looking after your planet.
It also debunks the numbers:
- providing an accurate picture of your carbon footprint and water consumption,
- identifying the actions that really do matter and
- providing the reasons that the numbers often quoted by the government or the media simply do not add up.
Get reliably informed and get inspired to embrace and enjoy the challenge of living lightly and living well. Buy Your Life, Your Planet.
