How to spot greenwashing, stop consuming and demand a more sustainable future.

Climate change is now a mainstream conversation topic, and yet every week our recycling piles are still overflowing and we're faced with a steady stream of brands trying to persuade us to buy their eco-friendly products in our quest to live sustainably.

For too long, corporations have shifted the eco-responsibility onto us, the consumers. It's time to push back and demand change.

In Buy Better Consume Less, Ethical Hour founder Sian Conway-Wood provides practical tips on how to stop consuming, advice on how to see through corporations' greenwashing, and steps to hold them accountable. In doing so we can create demand for sustainability in supply chains, and put pressure on decision makers to implement systemic change that puts people and planet above profit.
