Fred Pearce is a British author and journalist with a special interest in environmental issues.

In confessions of an eco sinner he tells the story of his search for the origins of his everyday food, clothing and technology .

He follows beans back to Kenya, cotton to Bangladesh, plastics to China, discarded computers to India…; in fact he travels all over the globe (he calculates his carbon footprint too) to get to the often hidden truth.

There are many harrowing tales, but also stories of people who are making a difference. He leaves us with hope.

I recommend this book to anyone interested in saving the planet!
