Hi folks

While this blog is cooling off for a while I thought I’d let you know about the other two blogs that we are currently concentrating our energies on. This blog will possibly return in one form or another, especially in light of the fact that we’ll be releasing Go Slow Italy in April 2009. But there will be much more about that later! You’re welcome to lobby for more content on this blog by leaving comments for this post but otherwise why don’t you visit:

The Book of Rubbish Ideas blog

This blog is a companion to the upcoming The Book of Rubbish Ideas, which you can currently pre-register for to receive a 50% discount special offer code and advance notice of when the book is available. Every householder should have a copy of this guide to reducing household waste and stopping wasteful behaviour. Containing step by step projects, the book takes a top down guided tour through the average family home.

On the blog you’ll also find further reading, more great tips and a few short films. The Book of Rubbish Ideas is written by Tracey Smith, the founder of National Downshifting week, and published by Alastair Sawday Publishing as part of their ongoing Fragile Earth series.

What About China? blog

Available now, What About China? answers all those awkward questions about climate change that you’re afraid to ask and lays to rest the speculations and misconceptions rife amongst even the most well meaning individuals. The blog continues the debates online and you can even ask your own question.

The book is laid out in a series of questions with jargon-free answers provided by a panel of experts from The Soil Association, WasteWatch, Ecover, The Centre for Alternative Technology, James Bruges (author of the Little and Big Earth Book) and Alastair Sawday.
