Unfortunately in the course of researching a book on green marketing I've discovered that about half of everything I do, buy etc. is rubbish. ie not just environmental damaging but actually quite stupid. It was fine when I didnt know. But now its not. The pledge against change is now officially busted I'm afraid (prob a good thing, it got a bit boring about 3 months ago anyway).
I've decided that the only sensible thing to do is to try to change one thing a week.
I had thought of starting with electricity supplier, because its a one off change but I need to check a couple of things first (eg I think i my current contract)
But then I read about mineral water. I knew it was a bit crap from the point of view of transport and recycling. What I didnt know was that in a test (Health Which?) only 7 out of 40 brands got as good a result as London tap water. I have decided not to drink mineral water any more and to drink tap water instead. I'm particularly looking forward to ordering it loudly when I meet someone for lunch at a posh restaurant later this month.
Let's see how it goes.
