And which "ethical" claims can we trust? The "Rough Guide to Ethical Living" cuts through the greenwash to answer these and many other questions. From tea to trainers and pensions to plane-tickets, the guide looks at all the problems and ethical options. With recommended websites, books and magazines plus tips on reducing your carbon footprint at home and on the road, this book is the essential handbook for responsible consumers.
