A humorous, inspirational, and practical guide for anyone venturing into a greener world.

Does it involve huge sacrifices? Is it a lot of extra work? Is it more expensive? This book charts the story of how she and her family adjustedtheir failures and successes. Grittily realistic about the ups and downs of living in a more eco-friendly style, she manages to combine the practical with the inspirational, taking on the big brands and giving readers the facts. Packed full of great tips, it takes readers through a set of personal green challenges and explains how to make a difference while staying sane. From kicking her supermarket habit to composting her kitchen waste, Kate's confessions are witty and down-to-earth.
