Greening a Lifestyle

Donnachadh McCarthy was a ballet dancer before he became an environmentalist. Active in local politics as a councillor in Southwark, London, he became deputy chair of the UK Liberal Democrat party until 2004. Since, he has spent time as an environmental media commentator and green lifestyle coach. His book “Saving the Planet without Costing the Earth” gives 500 simple ideas and steps to a greener lifestyle.

Ever one to walk his talk, Donnachadh has spent the last few years greening his own house and lifestyle, including installing the first domestic inner city wind turbine. Here he gives us a guided tour of the changes he’s made to his home in south east London, with plenty of practical suggestions along the way.
