Description

Wouldn't you like: - Products that don't damage the environment? - A better way of life without agonising about your 'footprint'? - To really know your stuff? Climate change? Biofuels? Nuclear power? Landfills? Recycling? Renewable energy? Environmental issues can feel overwhelming. But, in fact, it is simple; it all comes down to one thing - stuff.

Our use of the Earth's resources - whether a crisp packet or a cargo ship, a T-shirt or a wind turbine - has an inescapable impact on our future.

In The Secret Life of Stuff, Julie Hill uncovers the origins and the true cost of what we use.

Her inventory of over-consumption may shock but it is the first step towards overcoming waste.

The misuse of stuff is not your fault, it's a product of history.

But it is only by understanding what has gone wrong, that everyone - politicians, business people and us as consumers - can create a new and better material world.
