In Sustainable Knitting for Beginners and Beyond you can learn how to knit more sustainably with this practical guide from knitting blogger and environmentalist, Epipa.

This collection of 20 projects shows you how you can make your knitting more environmentally friendly by choosing the most eco-friendly yarns such as bamboo, organic cotton, linen and flax, as well as tips on how to reduce your yarn footprint.
