"Helen Edwards is one of those women who seems to juggle more balls in the air then the rest of us could even consider, yet she humbly acknowledges that life isn’t all Insta-perfect all the time, thank goodness, there’s enough of that going around!
Her passion for all things ethical, sustainable and handmade is unsurpassed and she works extremely hard to help us average folk make better choices, have access to often hard-to-find resources and brings joy and inspiration into our daily lives through her social media channels and emails.
A seasoned thrifter and up-cycler, Helen’s styling blends vintage pieces with one-off handmade and is fun-filled, yet considered and balanced; encouraging the viewer to feel that they can achieve something similar in their own home without having to resort to living on lentils for the next 6 months.
Helen is incredibly generous in her knowledge and impeccably professional to work with; I cannot recommend this lady highly enough!" Sarah, Sea Soul Studio

"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".

In true ‘Think Global, Act Local’ style, the book is full of information, tips and actionable steps to help you move towards a more sustainable way of life. Helen’s simple and achievable approach is inspiring and motivating, and her passion for our planet and its people shines through. What a great read for anyone who is looking to make changes, big or small, towards a more sustainable way of living" - Julie Chasing Spring
