It’s been 3 weeks since I last published a newsletter. I don’t know what happened, I just ended up out of sync with very little to publish a week ago. Maybe everyone was too busy getting ready to re-enter society to publish any news!
Since I last wrote I’ve also been busy I was interviewed for a research project on food waste, was featured in the eco edition of the RTE Guide, gave two online talks for 3 county councils. hosted an online chat with patrons of the website, gave a talk on circular design to a furniture manufacturer, started recording for my podcast, was interviewed for a piece in the Irish Independent, mentored 5 companies on sustainability and contributed to a submission on the EU’s proposed Sustainable Product Initiative.
But enough of that, now for some positive eco news …..

Wow – things are really taking off for you. Maybe I should move back to Ireland! (Or maybe I’m just lazy about connecting with people, haha).
Interesting news from SBUX. They’ve been trying to tackle the cup waste problem for a while – mostly ineffectively 😉
The citrus story is on a very interesting solar-powered website! This is an interesting synchroninicity as I’m researching the footprint of web data right now!
I wouldn’t say it’s taking off. It’s been a very slow grow and to be honest the media and government are more interested than the general public, which is kinda depressing. I love that low-tech website, there’s something about the ‘old’ ways that appeal to me. Actually I’d love to write a book about it!
