“It’s important to remember that sustainability must be sustainable to you.”

It was with the above quote that I was sold on the approach this book makes - it didn’t leave me feeling guilty, or shame me into following one set of rules. It’s set out to include tips and advice that I want to try and follow.

It did only take a few hours to read through, but I’ve written lots of notes from it that I’m sure I’ll be going back to over and over. And that’s exactly what I wanted from it - if it had taken

Finally got through this little bugger. I have to say that, while I did not find it very helpful in my current situation, I did jot down ideas for when we have a home of our own. I don't think I'll keep it in my personal collection after reading it, but I already have a person in mind to re-home this book. If you want to kickstart a more sustainable life, then I would recommend this little gem. It'll at least get you thinking about how you can better your own home.

so many helpful ideas, I need to go thru and bookmark as there is not an index! so much in this book that was eco friendly, do it yourself, natural and non toxic for the home ~ a very happy read! I found so much out about my own community by the helpful tips in this book to look for certain things online in your community.

A really nice book with lots of info on how to live a more eco friendly life. In every aspect. Many things I already knew from the internet or did (I decluttered most of my clothes 3 years ago, when the KonMari method wasn’t this big yet) but I think it’s good to have something offline to check once in a while. And the illustrations are just so good. I loved them

An interesting little book. I am very keen to make more sustainable lifestyle choices. This book is full of simple ideas and small steps help reduce our impact on the planet. Beautifully illustrated and well written with chapters from cleaning to re organising your home. Definitely a worthwhile read.

I’m giving this book 5 stars purely based on the fact my fiancée and I recently purchased a 1930 home that is still fitted with it’s cast iron radiators. The tip on radiator foil (something I’d never heard of before) has me quiet excited!

There were some really insightful ideas throughout this book. Some I have already started doing, some I hope to do in the future, but some I doubt I can do due to finances and other living conditions.
