About the Green Guide

Books, magazines, online, directory & advice: all you need to be green...

The Green Guide is about changing our patterns of consumption and seeking out greener, natural and ethical alternatives to every conceivable type of product and service.

It’s about buying more wisely, consuming less, wasting less, thinking through the consequences of our purchases. It’s about reducing our impact on the planet and our fellows by making choices that are better for us, better for the environment, and better for other people.

It doesn’t preach, but it does show that there is a way forward to one-planet, sustainable living, a means to combat climate change and a way to protect the world’s scarce resources.

We publish in a variety of formats - both online and in print - our aim is to be the directory for planet-friendly living.
