Ecotricity – the world’s first green energy company, has today announced its green gas supply to homes and businesses is now recognised as vegan – alongside its green electricity, which received registration from The Vegan Society earlier this year.
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.
A new £400,000 government funded project will start work this month to investigate whether gamification, including virtual currencies, competitions and raffles, can encourage electric car drivers to engage with Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) technologies – and be a part of Britain’s smart energy grid future.
We love working with businesses that take sustainability to heart. Norfolk Gin do just that, while producing beautiful green-tinted, botanical (wait for it) gin, handcrafted in (you guessed it!) Norfolk. We spoke to their Director and Chief Gin Maker, Jonathan, who told us all about how their gin’s not just green in colour.
Deep in the ancient woodlands of the Cranbourne Chase lie the Larmer Tree Gardens. During their first creation in Victorian times, music and entertainment were important features, with singing, plays and poetry recitals entertaining over 44,000 visitors a year by 1899. In the evening the gardens were illuminated by thousands of lights, and there was dancing in the open air. The novelist and poet, Thomas Hardy, described it as “quite the prettiest sight I ever saw in my life”. However, following the death of the owner in 1900, the gardens closed.
