small world steps, big planet heroes

by Natasha Milne and Barbara Royal

While many of us feel overwhelmed with doom and gloom stories of a planet in peril, there are millions of people across the globe actually doing something about it. Some are household names, many are not, but all find at least one reason to get out of bed each day and help the world.

One Hundred & One Reasons to Get Out of Bed introduces us to 101 everyday earth advocates. It asks them three simple questions: what gets them out of bed and why, what they are doing about it and what we can all do about it. ,

Along with Jane Goodall’s fight against poaching, Louie Psihoyos’ weapon of mass construction, and a 10 year old boy’s lemonade stand to help orangutans - business innovators Rick Ridgeway and Sir Richard Branson, global economist John Hewson, and Garbage singer Shirley Manson, all add their voices to nearly one hundred others, encouraging us to find our ‘one thing’ and commit to move ourselves and our communities toward the brightest possibilities for the future.

One Hundred & One Reasons offers up incredible insights, hope and tips for all of us. It's a colorful, informative snapshot of common global concerns and solutions. With its simple layout and beautiful images, the book will resonate with anyone who is interested in living a ‘better normal’, those of us who care about our world, ourselves and our future.

Proceeds from the book support charities directly represented by  our contributors and fund a multi-media campaign about other planet heroes.
