Unfortunately I was not in London to receive this news first hand but received it via email and cut/pasted the press release from the UK Government's Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs for your reading pleasure. Just maybe this will encourage Rag Traders worldwide to "man-up" and get their "Green on" already...

What did you think of President Obama's first speech to a joint session of Congress? Unlike past administrations it's a pleasure to hear much needed support for the Green Movement and from this day forward should be addressed as the "Everybody Movement".

Good night I am finally takin' my ass… Continue

I also have to mention the brilliant idea of John Patrick having local farmers setup to share their goods with the fashion set… Continue

This may not sway those who still can't let go of the non-eco blazed out smartphones, yours truly included.

i like europeans
. that's right. you heard me. i like them and i don't understand why it is considered unamerican to like them. is it because they don't get fat? i guess that's a valid reason, but they still pwn us when it comes to the environment.
