The Eco-Taxes Set to Reshape the Economy (and your ski holiday)

Things have changed a little since we last spoke. You’ve probably heard me banging the drum for making small changes on the Clean Mountain Living Podcast. Well, our whole lives have been turned upside down. I don’t know one single person whose life hasn’t dramatically changed in 2020. The future is more unknown than we’ve seen in recent history. International travel has ground to a halt, millions of businesses have shut across… Read More

We are 8 days into self isolation in France and as a family we are settling into some sort of rhythm. Home schooling, short dog walks, Netflix, online drawing courses, Youtube PE lessons with 800k participants, checking in with friends… Read More

How to Communicate About Climate Change?

Climate change can be a scary topic, we’ve all felt overloaded and trodden down by the sheer weight of facts. Let’s be honest, it doesn’t often make for pleasant reading.  The thing is, intimidating facts, moral diatribes, and naughty lists probably aren’t helping. It does more harm than good, turning people off the subject and leading to frustration.  Or even worse, Climate Anxiety… It’s hardly surprising, when we’re communicating and talking about… Read More

Small Businesses Must Lead the Way to a Circular Economy

When we think about system change in society it comes from the top down. Individuals like you and me may even feel a little powerless. Governments and large corporations are the ones that need to stand up and be accountable.

Changing your default settings

I once read an interview with a man who, every so often, got into bed upside down. He slipped his PJs on, put his pillow where his feet normally go and slept the wrong way around… Weird, right? But this image really stuck with me. Because he did it to change perspective, shake up his brain a little, freshen his ideas, override those default settings that keep us doing the same things… Read More
