From the back cover:
Embracing an eco-friendly lifestyle can be a daunting prospect for the average urban dweller. Synthetic surroundings are miles away from inspiring pastoral scenes, and the temptation to indulge in a spot of mindless consumerism lurks around every corner. To exacerbate matters, urban dwellers are generally pressed for space, probably cash and definitely time. This handbook aims to address these issues head on, dispel the myths and provide some viable solutions. Chapters including "absolute beginners", "go wild with food", "the world's smallest vegetable patch" and "green scene" provide green and organic options for a dynamic urban existence. They explore everything from severing the cord to your local supermarket and looking at some other more exciting shopping options, to thinking creatively about recycling and transport, to enjoying a green night out. The "city focus" sections hone in on some successful projects in UK cities from Cardiff to Leeds. And, in the spirit of learning from someone else's trials and errors, excerpts from the author's diary show the reality behind altering your lifestyle. The end results show that even the most outrageous townie can discover their green roots with the minimum of disruption.
