How to live sustainably(ish)

  • by JW

Here’s a very welcome website:


“The home of easy, every day sustainabilty for the #imperfectlygreen!”

“If you want to find your tribe of fellow knackered types trying to spin all the plates, and save the world, all whilst trying to ignore the growing grumble of eco-anxiety that just won’t go away, then welcome!”


Today’s i-newspaper has an inspiring long read by the author, Jen Gale:

My family went a year without buying anything new — it changed our lives forever |


And she’s got a book out later this week:


The Sustainable(ish) Living Guide

Easy, do-able, down to earth ideas and suggestions for everyone to help save the planet.If you want to save the planet, but your to-do list is already pretty long and remembering your re-usable coffee cup feels like a Herculean task, then this is the book for you. Covering every aspect of our lives from the stuff we buy and the food we eat, to how we travel, work, and celebrate. This book provides stacks of practical, down to earth ideas to slot into your daily life, alongside a gentle kick up the butt to put your newfound knowledge into action.

Practical tips include unsubscribing from all the tempting emails that drop into your inbox with details of the newest clothing range or the latest sale, and keeping a mug next to your kettle to work out how much water you actually need to boil each time, as over filling kettles costs British households £68 million on energy bills each year.

Find out how to fit “sustainable living” into your life, in a way that works for you. Change your impact without radically changing your life and figure out the small steps you can make that will add up to make a big difference (halo not included).
