Synopsis

Wouldn't you like:



- Products that don't damage the environment?



- A better way of life without agonising about your 'footprint'?



- To really know your stuff?





Climate change? Biofuels? Nuclear power? Landfills? Recycling? Renewable energy? Environmental issues can feel overwhelming. But, in fact, it is simple; it all comes down to one thing - stuff.



Our use of the Earth's resources - whether a crisp packet or a cargo ship, a T-shirt or a wind turbine - has an inescapable impact on our future. In The Secret Life of Stuff, Julie Hill uncovers the origins and the true cost of what we use. Her inventory of over-consumption may shock but it is the first step towards overcoming waste. The misuse of stuff is not your fault, it's a product of history. But it is only by understanding what has gone wrong, that everyone - politicians, business people and us as consumers - can create a new and better material world.

Julie Hill has 25 years environmental experience, including working with governments, businesses, the environmental think-tank Green Alliance, the Environmental Agency and the award-winning Eden Project. She counts her experiences as parent, consumer and citizen to be just as relevant to The Secret Life of Stuff as those generated by being a life-long environmentalist.
