About the Book

‘This is a quite simply a marvellous book. I couldn’t find a trace of po-faced sanctimony nor yet the patronising tones of an expert attempting to speak to mortals. The conversational style – the beguiling marriage between accessible science and conspiratorial whispers which make it OK not to know everything – is really uplifting … may everyone get the rush of pleasure from it that I have done.’ Sir Tim Smit, co-founder of the Eden Project

'As someone who is passionate about nature and a proud eco nerd, I love this book and you will too!' Ellie Goulding, singer-songwriter and UN Environment Ambassador

Divided into ten important topics, and including revealing questions on recycling and reusing, the importance of flora and fauna and planet-friendly food, find out how much you really know about how our consumer habits and lifestyles are affecting the environment, and the positive changes we can make now to ensure we're all true friends of the earth.
