A Life Stripped Bare

You want to live more ethical? Read this book:

“A Life Stripped Bare – Tiptoeing Through The Ethical Minefield”
by Leo Hickman (2006)

 

Content

Is fair trade coffee better than organic? Can you really clean a loo with vinegar and lemon juice? Such were the dilemmas facing Leo Hickman and his wife, Jane, a new mum, when he was asked by the Guardian to lead a more ethical life for a few months. A Life Stripped Bare is not a preachy guide but the diary of a struggle – through the myriad uses of bicarbonate of soda; instructions for assembling a wormery; the visit from three ethical auditors who snoop in all their cupboards: ‘A true eco-house might have no fridge, just a larder, and a water-containing pottery vessel as a cooler,’ offers one. (‘Jane’s eyes roll’, notes Hickman.)

Save our oceans – Avaaz-Petition

By 2050, our oceans will have more plastic trash than fish.

 

It’s shameful. Half of the plastic made we use just once and throw out, choking our seas and all the animals in it.

 

But in days, our governments can stem this tide when they meet at a historic summit to outline their clean ocean commitments. Public pressure just got #2 polluter Indonesia to commit to a 70% reduction in plastic waste! Now we need to go after the other top polluters.

 

If one million of us get behind a global call the Head of the UN Environment Programme will announce our petition from the summit podium and work with us to push countries to ban single-use plastics and let our oceans breathe again. Add your name.
