The Greening of Gavin – My First Year of Living Sustainably by Gavin Webber

The Greening of Gavin – My First Year of Living Sustainably by Gavin Webber It was the impact of a documentary that kicked him into action, whereby he decided to lower his family's impact on the planet, in the attempt to live a more sustainable lifestyle. This is the story of his first year of 'The Greening of Gavin'.

Gavin's philosophy is a simple one and he describes it as this; "An Ordinary Australian Man Who Has A Green Epiphany Whilst Watching A Documentary, Gets a Hybrid Car, Plants A Large Organic Vegetable Garden, Goes Totally Solar, Lowers Consumption, Feeds Composts Bins and Worms, Harvests Rainwater, Raises Chickens, Makes Cheese and Soap, and Eats Locally."

I really enjoyed this book. The author has broken his first year of learning to live "green" into practical sections like "Waste" and "Water Conservation", describing his actions in that first year in each category. Each chapter finishes with a "What I'd Do Now" section, which were my favourite parts. If you've followed the blog, you'll appreciate the opportunity to see how it all began in an easy to read format. If you're new to Gavin Webber's story, you're lucky - this is a great way to discover how an ordinary bloke living an average life started to make changes that significantly reduced his carbon footprint.
