General Sustainable Living Books


The Natural World

  • David Attenborough – A life on our planet – (out on 1/10/20)
  • Anthony Lawrence – The Last Rhinos. A real tearjerker and brings to life the struggles to save endangered species.
  • George Monbiot – Feral – A very interesting book about rewilding. The idea is to release wildlife back into areas, that have been long gone, so that they can reshape, reform, repair and rewild the landscape. There are a number of rewilding projects going on in the UK these days.
