A Life Stripped Bare: My Year Trying to Live Ethically

9781903919613: A Life Stripped Bare: My Year Trying to Live Ethically

It is hardly news that a growing number of people want to step back from the brink of Western consumerism and find a way to live an all-round cleaner existence. So how do we go about it? Most people resist giving up their cars, their toxic household products, their cheap washing machines, or dodgy, unethical bank accounts in order to make the world a better place, but Leo Hickman, resident consumer expert of the Guardian, reckoned he should give it a try and report back on whether it is possible to live a life that is Western but aware. Leo's fumbling but hugely well-intentioned and increasingly successful efforts to do the right thing can't fail to involve, educate, inspire—and amuse—his readers.

Book Description Transworld Publishers Ltd, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 196 x 128 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. How often in life does convenience triumph over doing the right thing? And what is ethical living anyway? When it comes down to it, most people fight shy of giving up their cars, or their toxic household products, their cheap washing machines, or dodgy, unethical bank accounts in order to make the world a better place. So Leo Hickman, resident consumer expert of the Guardian, decided to give it a try. Over the course of a year, he and his family set out to discover whether it was possible to live a normal life - job, mortgage, kids, holidays - while at the same time making each daily choice or decision an ethical one - for the family, their neighbours and the environment. This the story of that year, is a record of an extraordinary transformation. Amid the pitfalls and confusion, Leo s account is funny, inspirational and a mine of information for the curious.
