Simon Gear | Environmental Speaker

Our air is polluted, our temperatures are rising and resources are dwindling.

Everyone is talking about the dire state of the planet, global warming and greening their lives, but where do you start?

South Africa’s favourite weatherman Simon Gear has a solution: 365 easy-to implement tips to help you make your world a greener place, one day at a time.

This tried and tested advice is a perfect beginner’s guide to help you decrease your carbon footprint and make your environment more sustainable.

From the incredibly easy: brew coffee from home (saves you time, money and a couple of trees); take the stairs (and cut your chance of dying young by 15%); to the intrepid and exciting: make your own wine (any sugary liquid that has been left to go off then strained to get rid of the floaty bits); ride a motorbike (to get that debonair aura of bikers everywhere).

Going Green is THE book to set you on a greener path.
