This week, some of the most socially and environmentally responsible brand's in the world are coming together to convince us that what brand of mascara you use, or what kind of watch you wear is as important as the career you've decided to pursue or the area you've opted to live in. And not for the reason you'd think.
Walking during the autumn is like nothing else. In your local woodland (mine being 'my' National Trust Llanerchaeron woods in Ceredigion), wood smoke mixes with the leaves to create that beautiful, familiar scent that should be bottled. It's cooler than summer, but not cold.
I consider my relationship with nature as a long and unfolding conversation, like learning a language that I can never master. And this conversation is never dull. Like most discourses, it only improves with time and age, to reach a point where a constant connection evolves and grows, with almost daily realisations.
Klein's fundamental argument is simple: in order to prevent global warming, we need an ideological shift away from neo-liberalism towards a fairer, greener and more egalitarian form of society
New York, 25 September 2015. There is no denying the fundamental and inextricable link between climate change and development. The latest Intergovernm...
What are the pupils going to learn from this addition to their timetable? That there is nothing wrong with inflicting pain, fear and trauma on another animal? Or that there is nothing wrong with killing?
We've picked three amazing hotels which have been transformed into luxury accommodation from a former purpose. You might find it hard to believe but you can actually sleep in a railway carriage, have tea at the top of a lighthouse - and spend the night in a bank! These unusual, quirky hotels make for an unusual, quirky stay!
As with the Scottish referendum, so with climate: there are two options - change, or be changed irreversibly. The consequences of either have sod all to do with politicians, but in the latter the entire planet is screwed.
As the gap between rich and poor continues to widen and as marchers around the world protest at the on-going lack of action on climate change, it's surely high time for the WEF, governments and global justice campaigners alike to ponder how the 'Competitiveness Contradiction' might be resolved.
There's only one thing I can tell you about the town of Oslob in the Philippines: don't go. There is a tendency amongst travel bloggers to over romanticise, but I wouldn't want to lie to you.
If every person in the UK went meat free for one day, it would reduce our carbon footprint by more than if every vehicle in the UK was taken off the road for one day! As well as being responsible for a huge amount of global greenhouse gas emissions, meat production requires increasingly unsustainable levels of precious resources - land, water and energy...
Scotland has been cited as the Saudi Arabia of renewable energy, to harvest that potential to the full, Scotland will need to remain a part of the United Kingdom. Furthermore whether independent or not, the Scottish economy must transition itself further away from fossil fuels rather than developing closer bonds with a dirty energy system. I urge the Scots to vote no to Independence on Thursday.
We like eating fish so we want fish to eat. Sadly, our great oceans don't have an endless supply so we can't all eat all of the fish all of the time. Therefore, we need to ask "which fish can we eat now?"
There are plenty of adorable animals with majestic appearances such as pandas or tigers, however there are also many bizarre looking animals that may not appeal to us humans. Charles Darwin has taught us that animals undergo constant evolutionary selection so that the seemingly disfigured animals are actually naturally adapted to thrive in their habitats.
Climate change policies have been a controversial area of UK politics for a number of years. Regular headline-grabbing claims on the impacts of these policies on energy bills have played their part in this. But equally problematic is the fact that a lot of the debate to date has centred on the upfront cost of low-carbon policies, with very little attention paid to understanding the broader economic impacts of reducing the UK's emissions.
I wish to narrow the focus, to explore our relationship with animals. I propose a different future: a hypothetical outlook at odds with current reality and direction. So, let us fast forward fifty years.
