Who most deserves my charitable donations? What are my household cleaners doing to my family's health? Was the person who made my shoes paid fairly? Our lives are beset by such dilemmas. None have easy answers. But more and more of us want to try and do the right thing. Somehow we must reduce our demands on the planet's resources and at the same time, focus on our emotional wellbeing through our relationship with others - whether they are family, friends or the people who make the products we buy. Leo Hickman's guide through the issues of every day life has already established itself as the bible on the subject. This new edition, updated and expanded, is quite simply a must-have book, including many more of the popular 'dilemma' boxes and a fully updated directory of contacts and suppliers.
Leo Hickman is a journalist and editor at the Guardian, and writes a weekly column on ethical living. He is also the author of How to Buy, A Life Stripped Bare and The Final Call (June 07). He is married to Jane, and has three children.
