How Bad Are Bananas? by Mike Berners-Lee | Eco-Reads Volume.8

How bad are bananas? A question on everyone’s lips I’m sure. All jokes aside, I recently finished ‘How Bad are Bananas?’ by Mike Berners-Lee and boy is it a head-scratcher. As the title suggests, this eighth version of my ‘eco-reads‘ series looks scientifically at the carbon intensity of our everyday items. From a plastic bagContinue reading “How Bad Are Bananas? by Mike Berners-Lee | Eco-Reads Volume.8”

Who Cares Wins by Lily Cole | Eco-Reads Volume.7

Despite reading my fair share of books surrounding the topic of Sustainability, this seventh offering, Who Cares Wins by Lily Cole, brought a whole manner of new, insightful information to increase my understanding of the developing climate crisis. Over the space of the 400+ pages the scope and level of comprehensiveness that Cole went intoContinue reading “Who Cares Wins by Lily Cole | Eco-Reads Volume.7”

Save the World by Louise Bradford | Eco-Reads Volume.5

A short pocket read I picked up a few months back has made it onto my bedside table. ‘Save The World’ by Louise Bradford acts as a short book filled with handy tips and tricks on living Sustainably. Unlike others, I found this to be every so slightly academic, but be completely readable. In wayContinue reading “Save the World by Louise Bradford | Eco-Reads Volume.5”

The Sustainable(ish) Living Guide by Jen Gale | Eco-Reads Volume. 4

A complete comprehensive guide to being Sustainable(ish) would be the best way to describe this little treasure of a read. To give it the praise and admiration it deserves. At this point, I have read quite a few ‘Sustainability’ books, ranging from short pick-me-ups to full novels, and by far this is the best IContinue reading “The Sustainable(ish) Living Guide by Jen Gale | Eco-Reads Volume. 4”

CHOOSE LIBRARY | Now More Than Ever, Your Local Library Needs You

The humble library, one of the many places to have been hit hardest by the disastrous Covid-19. Shut for months, many many jobs at risks and so many great books lay untouched along the shelves; unread and deserted. In the same way secondhand clothes shopping has risen to gargantuan heights, the local library has seenContinue reading “CHOOSE LIBRARY | Now More Than Ever, Your Local Library Needs You”

How To Go Waste Free by Caroline Jones | Eco-Reads Volume. 3

A long-established fact by now is that becoming completely ‘waste free’ in the home is an almost impossible task. Well to the average everyday folk such as myself it is. Whether it be disposable income not covering the slightly higher price point some more Sustainable products are marked at, or simply down to an alternativeContinue reading “How To Go Waste Free by Caroline Jones | Eco-Reads Volume. 3”

Eating for Pleasure, People & Planet by Tom Hunt | Eco-Reads Volume. 2

Not being a particular Nigella in the kitchen, I often shy away from cookbooks, deeming them often too complex for my culinary skill set. But, being a person who is heavily into sustainability, reducing waste and the general climate crisis we are in the midst of, I was drawn to Eating for Pleasure, People & PlanetContinue reading “Eating for Pleasure, People & Planet by Tom Hunt | Eco-Reads Volume. 2”
