Plastic-Free Book Review:

“Tells a story that could inspire everyday behavior change for all of us. Small steps, leading to one big milestone: a planet free of plastic pollution.” —Daniella Dimitrova Russo, CEO and founder of Think Beyond PlasticTM Like many people, Beth Terry didn’t think an individual could have much impact on the environment. But while laid up after surgery, she read an article about the staggering amount of plastic polluting the oceans, and decided then and there to kick her plastic habit. In Plastic-Free, she shows you how you can too, providing personal anecdotes, stats about the environmental and health problems related to plastic, and individual solutions and tips on how to limit your plastic footprint. Presenting both beginner and advanced steps, Terry includes handy checklists and tables for easy reference, ways to get involved in larger community actions, and profiles of individuals—Plastic-Free Heroes—who have gone beyond personal solutions to create change on a larger scale. Fully updated, Plastic-Free also includes sections on letting go of eco-guilt, strategies for coping with overwhelming problems, and ways to relate to other people who aren’t as far along on the plastic-free path. Both a practical guide and the story of a personal journey from helplessness to empowerment, Plastic-Free is a must-read for those concerned about the ongoing health and happiness of themselves, their children, and the planet. “This is the tool that we’ve all been waiting for to ease the transition to going plastic-free. Time to wake up. Peace.” —Rosanna Arquette, actor, Plastic Pollution Coalition member “Practical and hopeful, with a kind of cheerleading charm.” —The Washington Post

Clutter impacts on our productivity, stresses us out and keeps us stuck. Why do we let our stuff stand in the way of the lives we dream about? Decluttering is great for our mental wellbeing, and when done right, it can be good for the planet too. When we rehome, repurpose or recycle the things we no longer need, we free up existing resources for others and reclaim our homes with less guilt. Less Stuff is a guide for people who find it difficult to declutter and who don’t want to see things go to waste. Step by step, you’ll explore finding your ‘enough’, learn how to let go of your old possessions without sending them to landfill, and eventually break the cycle of stuff. The end result is a planet with less strain, a home with more peace and a life with more meaning.

She starts by saying “no” to straws and grocery bags, and “yes” to a reusable water bottle and compostable dish scrubbers.

The Zero-Waste Chef Book Review:

A sustainable lifestyle starts in the kitchen with these use-what-you-have, spend-less-money recipes and tips, from the friendly voice behind @ZeroWasteChef. In her decade of living with as little plastic, food waste, and stuff as possible, Anne-Marie Bonneau, who blogs under the moniker Zero-Waste Chef, has preached that "zero-waste" is above all an intention, not a hard-and-fast rule. Because, sure, one person eliminating all their waste is great, but thousands of people doing 20 percent better will have a much bigger impact. And you likely already have all the tools you need to begin. In her debut book, Bonneau gives readers the facts to motivate them to do better, the simple (and usually free) fixes to ease them into wasting less, and finally, the recipes and strategies to turn them into self-reliant, money-saving cooks and makers. Rescue a hunk of bread from being sent to the landfill by making Mexican Hot Chocolate Bread Pudding, or revive some sad greens to make a pesto. Save 10 dollars (and the plastic tub) at the supermarket with Yes Whey, You Can Make Ricotta Cheese, then use the cheese in a galette and the leftover whey to make sourdough tortillas. With 75 vegan and vegetarian recipes for cooking with scraps, creating fermented staples, and using up all your groceries before they go bad--including end-of-recipe notes on what to do with your ingredients next--Bonneau lays out an attainable vision for a zero-waste kitchen.

Cook More, Waste Less Book Review:

An indispensable cookbook of delicious, flexible recipes, and easy, everyday solutions to reduce the amount of food waste you produce—for life. THE STATS ON FOOD WASTE ARE STAGGERING: currently one-third of all the food produced in the world is thrown away. Going zero-waste with food isn’t some-thing we’ll reach overnight, nor is it a hard and fast rule; but it’s something we should all be moving towards—to help the environment, and our own wallets too! Cook More, Waste Less uses recipe icons to guide you, and shows you how, for example, to cook a hearty Pot Roast and turn the leftovers into a Savory Pie, and then use the bones to make a stock to freeze for when you next make soup. And, how to make a meal of Simple Roasted Vegetables, then whip up a frittata the next morning, and use any scraps for Stone Soup. If you’ve got some extra rice? Turn it into Fancy Fried Rice with other ingredients in your fridge, or Leftover Rice Pudding for dessert. Fruit going soft? Turn it into Any Way Marmalade, or use banana peels for This Bread is Bananas. Fresh herbs or greens wilting? Put them in a pesto! Christine also includes guides on how to mix and match any array of vegetables, meats, and plant-based proteins for flexible, fast recipe ideas like Pasta Night or Taco Tuesdays. This definitive cookbook even looks beyond meals to other creative uses for extra foods, like making pet treats, beauty treatments, and home cleaning products, and it features advice from other experts—such as composting tips from Carson Arthur, and food waste solutions from Anna Olson, Bob Blumer, and Todd Perrin. Cook More, Waste Less is a life-changing cookbook that gives you simple and actionable steps on what you’ll cook next—and what you won’t throw away.

Can your business go green? Can it afford not to? Never has our impact on the environment been so relevant as it is today, and organisations of all sizes have an important role to play. The Good Green Guide for Small Businesses guides the reader through taking an environmental audit of their business to highlight the areas most in need of attention. It then addresses how to minimise the impact of office essentials, such as utilities, insulation, recycling and waste, electrical equipment, water systems, lighting options, food and drink, and office cleaning arrangements and products. It also covers issues such as incentivising green working and promoting a green company image, and discusses the effect that going green will have on the company's bottom line. This book is packed with practical, realistic, user-friendly advice for business owners or managers who want to change the way they work for the better.
