Green Essex?

I am coming to the conclusion that Essex is the least ‘green’ place I have ever lived. Take recycling for instance. As I look out of my window on bin day I can see more houses which have put no recycling out than those that have. In fact I can see 11 wheely bins (normal…

‘Make a Difference’ show cancelled

The Mad (Make a difference) show which was to have been held in London next week was on my ‘to blog’ list. It was to have been “the UK’s largest ethical lifestyle show, showcasing the best of fairtrade products, ethical services and sustainable & organic lifestyles”. Alas it has now been cancelled and the organising…

Take this post on Exigency In Specie about ‘Christianity, Christians and the Environment‘: …the amount of carbon dioxide produced by a flight to Greece for a…

Giving up supermarkets for Lent

Fishsoup, whose blog a heartbreaking work of staggering tiredness is one of our Wiblogs, has given up supermarket shopping for Lent. Last night I had sardines on dry bread with manky beansprouts, this can’t go on. Talking of supermarkets, there was a programme last week about the way that they are making a profit from…

Premier Taxi

A London Christian radio station is to promote itself by driving around in a taxi with its radio tuned in for passengers to hear gospel classics and Christian lifestyle shows.
