About the book:

Back in 2011 I became a parent for the second time and wanted to quit my job and be a stay at home mum. We had just moved house and increased our mortgage, now had two children to look after and I preferred to buy costly eco-friendly and organic products. How was I going to be able cut my spending by enough money to quit my job and stick to my eco-friendly principles?

The challenge was set and a year later I did quit my job to become a stay at home mum and blogger. I saved far more money than I ever could have imagined by being eco-friendly!

  1. Make the most of what you have

‘Trying to live a more eco friendly lifestyle can be overwhelming, but this book really helps to break the subject down into something far more manageable. Easy to read, and with straightforward techniques to use to help change your habits. I thoroughly enjoyed it!’ – Debbie Hardy – Director of Wastenot, Brighton

‘Zoe has a friendly and easy to read writing style – as I read a lot for my work I admit I don’t often read a book when I get home, but I sped through an electronic version of the book in a couple of evenings after dinner. The book is split into manageable chunks focussing on different areas of the home and different events and activities you might spend money on – so you can easily focus in on a particular area, or refer back to it again later. There are different options for ways to reduce waste and save money in each area so you can pick the ways that will work for you, and I particularly like the way each section ends with a challenge and advice on how to take things further. If you are starting to focus on ways to help the environment and save money, this is a great introduction.’ – Vicky – allotmentrecipes.wordpress.com
