Publisher's Summary

Bloomsbury presents The Sustainable(ish) Living Guide by Jen Gale, read by Jen Gale.

Easy, do-able, down to earth ideas and suggestions for everyone to help save the planet.

If you want to save the planet, but your to-do list is already pretty long, and remembering your reusable coffee cup feels like a Herculean task, then this is the book for you. Covering every aspect of our lives from the stuff we buy and the food we eat, to how we travel, work, and celebrate. This audiobook provides stacks of practical ideas to slot into your daily life, alongside a gentle kick up the butt to put your newfound knowledge into action.

Practical tips include unsubscribing from all the tempting emails that drop into your inbox with details of the newest clothing range or the latest sale, and keeping a mug next to your kettle to work out how much water you actually need to boil each time, as overfilling kettles costs British households 68 million on energy bills each year. 

Find out how to fit sustainable living into your life in a way that works for you. Change your impact without radically changing your life, and figure out the small steps you can make that will add up to make a big difference (halo not included).

My new bff

I didn’t even check to verify that this book was read by the author, but I know it was. I’m so glad that she read it herself and I know that we would be BFFs. She’s very relatable, kind, witty , and adorable, Not to mention incredibly intelligent and inspiring. My only beef is that the book is Generally exclusive to those living in the UK. I need her to write a book for the US😂😪

Awesome book to get a head start on a Sustainable life

I’m glad to buy this book, it is really cool, gives you many ideas on how to begin. The author is actually entertaining to listen to so I never got bored listening to her. Everyone who listens hopefully you do your bit saving our Earth, for our future generations. I’m already started to consumer very very less. But these are my own : Recycle all the plastic you use, even looking at way to make plastic waste into something useful like tiles, etc. Composting organic matter in the big bio gas chamber fitted at home.
Cheers, mate!

Great beginner's guide, even with many UK specific resources

Loved this book! Jen's approach was very realistic and relatable. This is a great beginner's guide full of resources. The only thing I might note is that as an American some of the phrases used were a little different and the resources were sometimes based in the UK. However I could always infer the meanings of phrases or was inspired to look up US resources.

Needs a resources PDF to accompany the audiobook

Loved this book. Really enjoyed it but so many resources for third party websites / shops etc that whilst listening and driving / walking the dogs meant that a lot were missed unless I trawled back through chapters trying to find them. I will be buying the kindle book as well.

Really useful hints abs tips and I’ve already recommended to a friend whose borrow the audiobook.

Really easy listening

Really good introduction into sustainable living. Well narrated and written. I would recommend this to anyone starting out on their journey to be more green. The writer gives useful tips without making you feel bad for starting with Amazo changes or doing your best!

Simply brilliant

I listened to the sample and thought ‘oh great, more information on what I can do to be more sustainable’ and upon opening Jen says “if you’re already on your way to being sustainable this probably isn’t for you” and I suddenly thought ‘oh maaaaan’ BUT this book is brilliant. Jen is a fabulous story teller and you WANT TO LISTEN to every word ( I think it took me about 3 days to finish because I just did not want to stop!) if you’re wondering how to be more sustainable or have already found ways of doing so but just want to know you’re not alone then this is for you! Thank you Jen ❤️

Brilliant listen

Great listen with excellent narration. Interesting and accessible with great, reasonable and practical advice presented in a way that doesn't judge or make you feel guilty. Just a sensible overview of the issues and good ideas which can make a real difference. highly recommended
