Books to read during BAM

By Sarah Boak on Sat, 11 Jun, 2016 - 18:49

It would be great to get a BAM themed book list together, with recommendations of thought-provoking books that people can read through the month.

I’ve just finished ‘Zero Waste Home’ by Bea Johnson and ‘Sew Your Own’ by John-Paul Flintoff, and will be re-reading ‘Saving the Earth’ by Akuppa for our BAM Southampton book group.

Any other suggestions?

Green Actions

By Sarah Boak on Sat, 11 Jun, 2016 - 18:45

What small/easy green actions can we suggest for someone just starting out thinking environmentally?

Here’s my suggestions, based on the things I’ve done recently that I’ve found very rewarding:

*switching to green electricity
*buying a bamboo toothbrush
*taking a reusable bag shopping
*taking trains/buses/cycling more often…
*buying secondhand clothes
*using public library
*using a mooncup
