The Field Studies Council (FSC) has switched its electricity supply to Britain’s greenest energy company, Ecotricity, and is planning to invest in renewables to help inspire the next generation of environmentalists.
The fashion industry isn’t well known for being green. Just last year, Stella McCartney condemned it as “incredibly wasteful and harmful to the environment”. So it’s good to know that there are businesses out there producing original clothes that don’t cost the earth. We spoke to Rosie from t-shirt printing business, Giant Triplets, as they prepare to take their sustainable fashion to Larmer Tree festival.
We’ve worked with the Field Studies Council (FSC) for almost a year now, sharing a vision for a greener Britain. They believe, much as we do, that the more we understand about the world around us, the more we’re inclined to protect its diversity and beauty. As our partner of the month, we asked them about their work to inspire people’s interest in the world we inhabit.
We love working with companies that do all they can to reduce their carbon footprint. One of the best ways to cut your emissions is by being powered by Britain’s greenest energy company. We chatted with ANS, the UK’s number one cloud services provider, to find out what green steps they take and why Ecotricity is the perfect choice for a sustainable business future.
Larmer Tree Festival is approaching fast and, if you’re going, you’ll have a lot of things on your list to see and experience. Just so you don’t miss it, we wanted to give you a quick heads up about the veggie and vegan refreshments on offer. We asked the folks at Larmer Tree to make some recommendations.
In over half of Britain’s homes, millions of ethical consumers – the growing legion of vegans, vegetarians and those concerned with animal rights are unknowingly powering their lives with electricity and gas made using the by-products of the meat and dairy industries, including animal body parts.
Fully Charged Live, the electric vehicle and renewable energy event of the year, took place at Silverstone earlier this month. Our IT Infrastructure Engineer, Gareth Edwards, manned Ecotricity’s display at the show, and talked EVs, sustainability, and the Nemesis, the UK’s fastest electric vehicle.
