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.

"Not a preachy guide but the diary of a struggle - through the myriad uses of bicarbonate of soda; instructions for assembling a wormery and a visit from three ethical auditors... There are plenty of facts and a selection of helpful letters - like the inspiring one from a woman who crochets her own dishcloths..." -- Carol McDaid * Observer * "The tone is just right for this book's target market...there is much that is inspiring here..." -- Tom Boncza-Tomaszewski * The Independent on Sunday * "Refreshing and funny, this book overflows with ideas for a more sustainable everyday life" -- Seb Boscher * The Ecologist * "A Life Stripped Bare is both funny and inspirational...Leo proves that living ethically isn't the preserve of the eco-warriors but of the typical man in the street. So take some action now!" -- Jenny Lee * Irish News * "Very entertaining...full of useful new things to fret about." -- Libby Purves * Radio 4 *
