Rethink: The Way You Live

 You  can  grow your own in the city.

I've put this new book down on my Christmas list as I reckon I'll need the incentive of a New Year's resolution if I'm going to take action. It's called 'Rethink: The Way You Live', by Aussie design writer (and Snoop blogger) Amanda Talbot. 

Far from being a traditional flick-through coffee table interiors book (don't get me wrong, still a big fan of those) this is one that's grounded in alternative ideas about how you can live differently in your home. 

You may already be recycling your own weight in Tetra-Paks every year, but are there more creative ways to incorporate sustainability into everyday life? Talbot has scoured the globe for trendsters who are pushing the boundaries and rethinking the way they live. 

Whether my own veg patch gets off the ground in 2013 remains to be seen.
