“Over the past few years the idea that the way we humans live our lives impacts on the world and everything in it has been a much explored theme in new literature in all modes. This new text by Helen Edwards of Recycled Interiors is a beautiful book, a good read, accessible and easy to dip into. Helen blends her own distilled thoughts, developed through years of blogging and research, with material from contributors, quoted material from the great thinkers of the world, and beautifully composed photographs. Written from the heart, Helen has produced a work which speaks to us all about the importance of even our smallest actions”.
Helen Wilde – B. A., B.Ed., Dip T (sec.)
I’m a newbie to all things sustainable, but Helen’s book had my interest piqued from the start. She covers lots of areas of sustainability – cooking, gardening, furniture restoration, and sustainable decorating – and makes some great points about the benefits of these practices, backed up with facts about environmental impacts. Would recommend her book to anyone looking for a simple, common-sense guide to sustainability – Bridgett McDonald, The Able Editor
