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 Christmas we want to help you buy useful presents for your loved ones and hopefully save some money (and the planet) along the way. According to a survey 60 million unwanted presents will be given this Christmas, big hitters include bathing products, films and box sets, candles, chocolate and socks.
The Autumn season is upon us and are we ready for Winter? The change in weather causes a change in habits - heating bills rise, water bills rise and we (usually) eat more food.
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.
