The book

Less Saves The Planet is a book that proposes to save the planet from going through the hotel and catering industry.
These places of life style where we live fun experiences can also allow us to change lifestyle and consumption mode. How? By empowering “culinary artists” to become actors in environmental change.


In the face of rising levels of greenhouse gases, plummeting biodiversity and global warming, can we still stop the inevitable?

Yes we can, even at the individual level, if we commit to changing our consumption patterns and behaviour.

Hotels and restaurants too can play a crucial role by leading by example and educating and informing their customers, guests and suppliers about this common goal which is easily achievable and which will have an obvious impact.

Is this still possible?

A resounding yes.  The solution is within our reach.

The authors
