YOU CAN MAKE A CHANGE
In this book, you''ll find 101 simple tips and tricks you as an individual can do in your everyday life to shop better and help save the planet. Governments, retailers and organisations around the world are finally starting to take action, but while we wait, let''s get started. In this proactive illustrated book, you''ll find 101 simple ways to change your spending habits covering:
- SHOPPING: e.g. unless you live within walking distance of the shop, buy online! Delivery vans act like public transport for clothes so are much better for the environment than us driving to shops individually.
- BUYING e.g. think 30 - would you wear this at least 30 times?
- WEARING e.g. don''t overfill your washing machine! It causes your clothes to rub together so they fade faster.
- REUSING e.g. upcycle old clothes with new buttons or even embroidery if you''re crafty.
We''ve said NO to plastic, it''s time to say the same to fast fashion.
