A Lighter Footprint: A Practical Guide to Minimising Your Impact on the Planet


A Lighter Footprint: A Practical Guide to Minimising Your Impact on the Planet Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Arguing that global warming is the biggest problem facing humanity today, this well-illustrated handbook seeks to reduce the heavy tread of the human races impact upon the planet. Using a tool called the ecological footprint, it estimates the resources that an individual consumes compared with the amount that nature can sustain. Most importantly, this examination debunks the myth that green living is not for everyone by detailing simple, practical, day-to-day actions that not only reduce costs to the environment but minimize financial burdens as well. A wide range of tips for recycling, ethical investment, lower-impact office practices, and responsible travel and event management are also included. Covering the subjects of carbon offset schemes and lighter-footprint options for transportation, energy, water, food, household goods and appliances, and even personal care items, this guidebook provides the means to replace ingrained habits with sustainable behavior.
