Wed, 14 Sep 2016 12:15:11 GMT

While thousands of us begin downloading the new iOS 10 operating system for our iPhones today, it is society itself that is urgent need of an upgrade if we are serious about evolving into a low-carbon, resource-efficient world.



Has the plastic bag tax achieved anything?

Wed, 14 Sep 2016 09:38:53 GMT

It's been almost a year since the 5p plastic bag tax was introduced in England and the expected chaos foreseen by some thankfully has not come into fruition. In the main, most of us are now pretty much used to bringing a 'Bag for Life' to the supermarket and saying no to the offer of a plastic bag when we have only a few items to carry from the checkout.

Maintaining optimism and the challenge of sustainable change

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 17:21:35 GMT

It can be difficult being a sustainability practitioner. Our mission sets us in opposition to the general direction of the world. Finding ways to stay optimistic, to celebrate change and keep an eye on the scale of transformation that is required, takes resilience, flexibility and deep reserves of passion and optimism.

Wonky fruit & veg: turning an environmental problem into a social solution

Fri, 2 Sep 2016 10:19:58 GMT

Once considered the 'ugly sisters' of the fresh produce world, imperfect fruit and wonky veg have been firmly in the media spotlight for a while now, and if a recent survey of supermarket managers proves to be correct, they may even turn out to be the saviour in our collective fight against food waste. Certainly, retailers have reported that wonky veg boxes are flying off the shelves.



Business and the Modern Slavery Act: a game of snakes and ladders?

Fri, 2 Sep 2016 10:15:11 GMT

Who has not played a game of snakes and ladders? The rules are simple - throw the dice, move the counter to reflect the number shown on the dice, go up the ladders and down the snakes. The first person to reach the highest square (number 100) wins. But only if you land on the actual square. If you roll too 'high' the piece 'bounces' off and rolls back.
