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)



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.)
