Tips for a Better World

Tips For a Better World

It can seem daunting and frightening, but each little step that each person makes, will make a difference.

With the demise of the single-use plastic bag, and the images of our polluted oceans and waterways filling our screens, we are all thinking about how we can improve life on our (only!) planet. Why not start at your public library? Each book we purchase has the potential to be read by many people. That's got to save a few trees! We have books on a huge range of subjects to give you some great ideas to help you change your lifestyle for the better. There are books on reducing your use of plastics; using less, recycling and reusing; growing and saving food at home; using natural materials that are not harmful to the environment - to name just a few topics.
