How the Green Guide works

Themes & Chapters

The Green Guide is organised according to twelve themes covering the whole range of a modern lifestyle. These follow a logical progression beginning with the basic individual requirements of food, clothing, shelter, energy and health and then move into the collective activities of family, travel, leisure, business and politics. Finally the Green Guide looks at the media, education and employment.

The twelve chapters listed below correspond to these twelve themes. The Directory (including online databases) and the listings published in each printed edition of the Green Guide – Regional Editions, Essentials, Pocket Guides, Gifts, Weddings, etc – follow these themes and chapters.

  • 01 Food & Farming
  • 02 Fashion & Beauty
  • 03 Building, Home & Garden
  • 04 Renewable Energy & Recycling
  • 05 Health & Wellbeing
  • 06 Children, Family, Community & Gifts
  • 07 Transport & Travel
  • 08 Leisure, Activities & Holidays
  • 09 Money, Sustainable Business & CSR
  • 10 Government, Campaigning & Change
  • 11 Media, Arts, Events & Awards
  • 12 Centres, Research, Education & Careers

Each chapter is broken down into sections which are further divided into sub-sections where appropriate. Not all sections have sub-sections. There are currently more than 1860 Sections and Sub-sections across the twelve chapters.

Each chapter contains a section or sections (depending upon the organisational complexity of the chapter) specifically on advice and organisations. Generally these contain listings of non-commercial organisations relating to the chapter theme and are useful if you want advice or information in more detail.
