Every householder should have a copy of this easy reference guide to reducing household waste and stopping wasteful behaviour. The book is a top down guided tour through the average family home, from bedroom and bathroom through to the kitchen and out into the garden. Although the percentage we recycle is increasing we still need to dramatically reduce the amount of waste we produce whether that be waste from the kitchen or bathroom or garden shed. Full of practical tips and quirky ideas – from insulating your loft to jazzing up your old clothes; growing your own food to keeping chickens.
