About the Book

Climate change is the biggest issue of our time. Natalie Isaacs used to think climate change was someone else's issue. After all, what can one person do to make a difference? Then she cut her electricity bill by 20 per cent and saw how much money and CO2 pollution she'd saved. From there she was inspired to take further action on climate change and to embrace the mantra 'less is more'.

In Every Woman's Guide to Saving the Planet, Natalie shares her journey from disengaged apathy to real action. Now the founder and CEO of the internationally recognised climate action organisation 1 Million Women, she explains:

  • why climate change is the biggest issue of our time
  • why women, who make around 85 per cent of household spending decisions, are incredibly powerful when it comes to taking climate action
  • how to get started on changing your own behaviours, whether it's switching to keep cups, reusable shopping bags or low-energy lightbulbs
  • how to make your new behaviours stick
  • how to cut back on waste, whether energy, food, fashion or single-use plastic
  • why stuff can't make us happy and why less truly is more
  • how to inspire your family, friends and community to take climate action.

With handy 'toolkits' packed full of practical how-to's, Every Woman's Guide to Saving the Planet will get you started on your own climate action journey. Natalie's message is simple: never underestimate the power you have in your life to change the world.
