As we close the chapter to our month of focusing on film and literature we thought it might be nice to celebrate eco warriors in the limelight. These may be film stars, TV personalities or singers, who are all working towards the same goal as us here at E.C.O. These are people who are working in active service to protect our planet from degradation and destruction. Using their position in society to amplify their voice and increase awareness is a necessary step to ensure the message of our climate crisis is reaching as many people as possible.
This month at E.C.O. we shining a spotlight on eco Film and Literature and are lucky enough to have interviewed a dear friend and author, Julian Hoffman. Two years after I met Julian in Indonesia, Julian, my boyfriend and I met in London in an old bank which has now been converted into a pub. After an amazing few hours of drink, food and environmental chit chat we had put the world to rights (we are awaiting our Nobel Peace Prize), and he kindly offered to spare his time for an interview via Skype which we are extremely grateful for!

The amount of plastic used in supermarkets has been widely criticised and for good reason. Items like fruit and vegetables, some of which have their own natural packaging, are wrapped in non-recyclable plastic and sold at a lower price than loose. We use OddBox, a fruit and vegetable delivery service which cut out plastic, reduce food waste and help fight food poverty.
