With the clocks having gone back and the darker evenings upon us, it’s soon time to get ready for Bonfire Night. We’ve already provided some great tips on how to enjoy the evening in the greenest way possible. Now we bring you some fantastic vegan recipes to cater for your celebrations.
Bonfire Night is a popular event for families across the UK but as we become increasingly conscious of the environment, it’s important to consider the impact this annual event has. The effects on air quality and wildlife can’t be ignored, but with a little consideration, bringing a bit of light-hearted fun to the darker nights doesn’t have to be guilt ridden.
Along with energy, transport and food, we focus on nature as part of our mission to create a greener Britain. We’ve planted a wildflower area at our head office in Stroud, which provides a source of food for our local pollinators, and we’ve installed bee homes so there are ready-made places for shelter.
Dale Vince, founder of Ecotricity has spoken out against a new government initiative - it's first-ever Green GB Week and claimed Greenwash Week would be a more accurate name, given the government’s appalling record on green issues.
