book of rubbish ideas by Tracey SmithYay! and happy bunny dances all around. Tracey’s “Book of Rubbish Ideas” is birthed onto the shelves of a book store near you TODAY!

After sweat, tears and toil, and no doubt some wonderful, excited moments of just knowing how important this book is going to be across the lands, Tracey has earned herself a big hug and some dollops of love from us.

Tracey, we are so proud of you for bringing awareness to a topic that, one might say, is a bit close to our hearts.

It’s a great book, put it on your Christmas list, dear readers, and treat all your friends to a copy too.

It’s an absolute bargain and you’ll get to dig some secrets on some celebrities as Tracey has some interviews with a few stars. This book is written with Tracey’s approachable and down to earth style, which she is famous for. It’s like having your best friend sitting on the sofa with you having a good natter when you read.
There’s nothing to frighten you off, only great information delivered in bite-size chunks so you, and your bin, have no danger of gagging on too much fodder. In addition, there are some great letters and emails to inspire you to contact manufacturers, shops and other people to get your voice heard.

Over on Tracey’s fabby blog, you can grab some sample chapters if you cannot wait to read it. So go on over, leave a message of support and be prepared for a great read. Tracey is already signed up for some interviews and book signings, so if you want to get your copy signed, head over to her site to find out all the details.

Well done Tracey and Thomas from Alastair Sawday’s!

    Mrs Green – thank you so much for your support of the book. I have such high hopes that it will be part of the movement that really shifts sustainable living ideas into the mainstream.

    I am very grateful for your posting and help to spread the word.

    Much love,
    Trace x x x

    We are all behind you and this important venture Tracey. Good luck with the promotions and may your sales sky rocket!

  3. is there a section in Tracey Smith’s Rubbish Ideas about recycling the very book?
    my compliments to anyone brave enough to tackle the issue of refuse, detritus, whatever it takes shape of.
    i am still in awe of the monstrous amounts of it that are generated in the US. will the book save some of us?
    signed: born re-cycling…

    Hi Nadine – yes there is and I actually wanted a page at the back of the book where each reader could put the name of the person they were going to give the book to, so you could see the many hands it had been through, but it had to be replaced with text!

    I want people to get this book, read it, take from it what they will and pass it on, until the pages can be turned no more! Also, get to the libraries up and down the country and borrow their copies too. I think you may have to pay a very nominal amount to order a book via the library, but it’s another great way to get hold of it.

    You’re right, there’s far too much waste in the publishing industry and if you head over to The Book of Rubbish Ideas blog, Thomas the Administrator has written about Sawday’s stance on it in a comment under one of the most recent posts (cannot remember which…)…

    Hope that helps,

    Hi Tracey – I enjoyed the preview pages very much. And I’m planning to go ask the library to put me on the list to reserve the book (so even if they haven’t ordered it yet it’ll hopefully be a prompt!)
