Eco-Guides are trendy, stylish books that give school-age readers realistic and practical advice on how they can live an eco-conscious life, right now. And that action can be taken by themselves, with their family, or as part of a school or community group. In this book, readers learn about sourcing eco-friendly clothes, and how they can apply a range of 'R's, such as recycling, reusing, and reducing consumption, to an imaginative range of fashion projects. The book also looks at ways to clean and dry clothes with least impact on the environment.
