Terence Conran runs you through every aspect of eco living – from completing an eco audit, improving your energy consumption and selecting greener materials for your home through to changing the layout of your home, converting lofts and installing green roofs.
Between the covers of this book – which is of course printed on paper from responsible sources – you’ll find a real wealth of knowledge. Although published in the UK, most information is directly relevant to us here in New Zealand. You may be inspired to implement some of the smaller ideas, such as updating fixtures, or to incorporate Conran’s principles fully if you plan on renovating your home. On top of being truly useful, the book is beautifully presented with loads of inspiring photographs and floor plans.
