Interesting News & Links
We aim to build a Green Sheet of all the things that people, Associations, Governments and Companies are doing around the world.  We will go direct to source where possible to give you the most unbiased news.  In the meantime, we hope these items will give you food for thought and you will consider the news relevant to helping you adjust your lifestyle to reduce your impact on the environment.

We will be building lists of top 10 key things to do, places to shop, companies that you may wish to buy shares in due to their green record and other ways that you can make a difference.  Reading and being informed is the first step, but is a bit like winking at a cute person in the dark, useless unless you take action.  We hope the ideas collected on this website encourage you to take action and that we make it easy enough to do so on a consistent basis.  We will make a difference together.
