green eco living directory 2009 / 10


This morning started much the same as any other lazy Sunday I made tea and porridge, then flipped on the BBC News and caught President Obama’s speech in Prague. He engaged a 20,000-strong crowd and received a rapturous applause as he delivered impassioned words about the environment. He said, ‘Together, we must confront climate change by ending the world’s dependence on fossil fuels, by tapping the power of new sources of energy like the wind and sun and calling upon all nations to do their part. And I pledge to you that in this global effort, the United States is now ready to lead.’ Big words from the new boy I thought and I desperately wanted to believe what he said. If it is true and they do, any positive green efforts from America will undoubtedly trickle across to our shores and we might at last see palpable change in the way GB & Co does business with Mother Earth PLC. When it does and our governing bodies look at the many green organisations we have here, when they realise how many committed designers, manufacturers and businesses there are developing eco-protocols with pride, they might also realise the urgent need to lace together the disjointed and fragmented genius we have in this beautiful country; it’s already in place and it’s making a huge difference to local and global environments. But consumers are still being confused and misled by greenwash. They’re often blinkered in their search for a simple source of information that will guide them towards ethical and informed decisions and they often have to part with their hard earned cash in order to see the light. Enter stage left, the free ‘Book of Green’. All this from two savvy ladies collaborating two great websites, a handful of worthy distributors and one clear aim; to help ‘you’ find that light. This worldwide financial crisis we find ourselves wrapped in, combined with timely awareness of peak oil, has brought us to a pivotal point in earth’s history. One where sustainable living solutions are being brought into play for the sake of survival and the ‘Book of Green’ can aid the transition. It’s up to us as free-thinking individuals to build on these foundation blocks and strengthen our resolve and our communities, whoever is in government, whatever they’re saying, even if it’s with the best will in the world. The power lies squarely in your hands. Turn the page and see what excites you first!

Tracey Smith Writer/Broadcaster Sustainable Living Author of The Book of Rubbish Ideas www.BookOfRubbishIdeas.co.uk Tracey Smith’s The Book of Rubbish Ideas is published at price £6.99.

Book of Green 2009 / 10 Whether you’re new to the green movement, or a signed up member, finding ways to be eco-friendly is now even easier. This book, brought to you by two leading online eco directories, is designed to guide you through 100’s of great green businesses with products & services that will help you have a positive impact on the planet, so collectively we can solve environmental issues. Katie started One Green Earth three years ago with the idea of connecting green industries to a wider audience. This led her to co-found Green Sisters, an online Ning community enabling collaboration between green & ethical entrepreneurs. Having seen the benefits of collaboration between those normally viewed as competitors she’s delighted to be working with Sue!

Katie Keegan

Sue started Allthingseco three years ago as at the time it was difficult to find comprehensive lists of green companies online. Working to promote an earth friendly future, she fortuitously, through Ethical Junction, met Katie and she’s very happy to have joined forces with her to co-create what you are reading now!

So, what does make a business ethical? The short answer swerr is a decision. ecision A decision to question what you do and how you do it. There are ma manyy dimensions arked d on an analysis an ysis of how to ethical business behaviour and once you’ve embarked you operate there are few areas of operation that won’t ’t need ne d re re-evaluating. evaluating The obvious things to start looking at are what materials aterials al and products pro ucts you y use in your business. For each, ask yourself what impact pact they t have ve on both the environment and the people who make them. The e goal should ld be b about b t minimising i i i i environmental harm while maintaining a fair system m for the workers. Often not an easy balance to achieve. Inevitably there will be e compromises om es and trade-offs such as buying local instead of organic or fairtrade e instead te of local, orr going goin for durability over eco-friendliness. The point is to keep asking the question and making g the e best be decision decis n you can. Ethical Junction members have all committed to operate ate by the th same Ethical Et Ethica cal Policy. They are part of a network that has been in force since together e 1999 99 an and brings to togeth ether businesses and consumers who share a commitment to ethical al value vvalues. ues. If your company is dedicated to it’s social, ethical and environmental onmental n responsibility why not join the Ethical Junction community.

Eco Hero The IT industry contributes the same amount of emissions as the global air travel industry. In order to run a website, you need a server running 24 hours a day, which means really heavy electricity consumption. Jamie launched Ecological Hosting in 2005 to provide a solution. It’s industry standard web hosting, but instead of being powered by the grid, it’s powered by the sun! Jamie and his team are reliable and really nice to work with. He describes himself as ‘practical green’. The office is powered by green energy from Ecotricity. They have a policy of reusing, recycling and freecycling. Both Jamie and his partner Sue are vegetarian, for both ethical and environmental reasons. Customers include Stopthetraffic.org, One Green Earth, Book of Green, Ethical Junction, Royal Geographical Society (DiscoveringAntarctica.org.uk), enoughsenough.org and Viva!

Four years ago Sally Broom was travelling in Asia when an idea struck: what if travellers could be connected with trusted experts in the destination to help them see the real country?

Sally’s vision was to connect visitors with the grass roots so they would spend more money locally while engaging with the community and local issues. Two years later Sally launched www.yoursafeplanet.co.uk, a global network of experts offering travellers a ‘friend at the other end’. YSP also began linking overseas volunteers with grass root projects in an aim to ensure more resources reach the cause directly.

Using organic skin care not only helps you to reduce your daily exposure to synthetic chemicals, but is also a very effective therapeutic approach for restoring balance in your skin and allowing your skin’s own natural health and vitality to emerge. Naturopathy, and many other holistic therapies, are based on the principle that nature heals. These therapies recognise that the body has an innate intelligence with the ability to heal itself and recover its vitality if we support the body (which includes the skin, our largest organ) and provide it with what it needs. Many conventional skin care products contain preservatives, additives and synthetic ingredients that can interfere with the skin’s healthy functions and upset its natural balance. The plant oils and herbal extracts which organic skincare products are formulated from are naturally packed with active nutrients which the skin loves. Many people notice that long term skin conditions and imbalances begin to clear up when they start using organic skincare.

In order to meet fire safely regulations, every piece of standard UK furniture has toxic fire retardant chemicals throughout each layer. Materials used are saturated in the chemicals. Sitting on the furniture heats up the material releasing toxic ‘off gases’ into the home and into our bodies.

Eco Tips 1- Cook potatoes, pasta or rice in a saucepan with a well-ďŹ tting lid. Bring to the boil, turn off the heat, and cook your meal for free with residual heat. 2- Turn computer and TV peripherals off. Leaving appliances on standby uses 10% of your household energy use. 3- Take reusable containers to the butchers, ďŹ shmongers or deli counter to reduce your weekly plastic waste.

5- Remove your kitchen bin! You’ll reuse, recycle and compost more because you’ve removed the convenience of throwing things away. 6- Use an energy monitor to discover how much energy you are using. You’ll soon change your habits and save up to 20% on your electricity bills.

Feature ‘Sustainable Garden Pleasures’ This year is set to unfold a whoppingly hot, long summer and if you want to connect with the planet and enjoy it even more, I’ve got a few ideas for you to play with. Even the tiniest garden can yield a few fruits and vegetables to supplement your table. Patio-pot grown tomatoes and chillies are super-easy and even more beautiful when basil, coriander or chives are grown alongside them. If you have a particularly sunny spot in your back yard, consider making or buying a solar oven, see www.SolarChef.eu for details. Use your outside space to eat whenever possible. Give the space a Mediterranean feel with a few terracotta pots cultivating your edible treats. Breakfast in the early morning sunshine is invigorating and reminiscent of holidays in far off climes and slow paced dinners with friends are divine and much kinder on your pocket too. Jazz up the table with the fabulously funky eco-bowls from www.VinylVillage. co.uk and don’t put yourself under pressure to cook everything - ask your guests to contribute food too. Once the stars are twinkling, it’s time to dazzle everyone with home-made elderflower champagne and a beautiful Firewinder, see www.Firewinder.com. Tracey Smith www.bookofrubbishideas.co.uk

It’s no wonder then that so many parents go organic from that day forwards, as we realise that even the seemingly small day-to-day life choices we make today will have an impact on their world tomorrow.
