Laura Tobin: Everyday Ways to Save Our Planet
About this deal
Along the way, Laura writes honestly about her own experiences of living a more eco-friendly life – from the things she found easy to change to the habits of a lifetime that were more difficult to shake off. You’ll also find out how her husband and daughter have adapted – or not! Sharing anecdotes from her own family's experiences, Tobin takes readers through areas of everyday life — from energy, water and transport, to how we manage our bathrooms, gardens and kitchens. Alongside fact files and infographics that make for sobering reading, we're presented with fixes to habits that hurt the environment. We can, for example, all easily brew our tea better, bathe better, and buy better. New Sports Biographies and Autobiographies: Gift a Book for the Sports Fan In Your Life this Christmas

Shipments to the USA & Canada: We all want to do our bit for the environment, but it’s hard to know where to begin when the climate crisis we are facing is so massive. The world is heating up at an alarming rate – last year was the joint warmest on record, and the last decade our warmest ever. If we don’t make changes now, we will reach tipping points where the damage is irreversible – think melting ice caps, rising sea levels, displacement of communities and the extinction of entire species of animals.
In this book, Laura breaks down the science of climate change in a way that’s easy to understand. She explains how we know humans are to blame, what exactly a ‘tipping point’ is and why that 1.5 degrees of difference really matters. Then, covering all aspects of everyday life – from the food we eat, the clothes we wear, the way we travel and even the way we celebrate – Laura gives practical advice on how we can live more sustainably and reduce our impact on the environment. Many of the ideas are simple, free, and can be put into action without disrupting our current lives too much. This book is for you if you don't know where to start and need practical advice on how you can help save the planet from someone who is not going to make you feel too guilty. Laura’s not telling you to never fly again, become a vegan or give up your car, but she will show how you can make small changes in every area of your life. Laura’s message is that no one can do everything, but everyone can do something – so let’s start a ripple and make a wave of change.
