REVIEW: The UK Organic Directory

One of the great people City Hippy met at Green Drinks International was a very nice man who runs a variety of web sites which make being green easier. And the City Hippy believes it is all about making it easier to be green. It is not about being judgemental. It is about helping you do what you can do.

Anyway I guess their main site is the fantastic UK Organic Directory.

You have to check it out. Even if you don't live in the UK.

The UK Organic Directory is packed full of ways to help you get green at whatever pace that suits you.

And if you can't find the stuff you want near you then why not speak to local similar shops to encourage them to get in on the 'Green' act. Trust me they will thank you for it.

Do remember of course that whilst you can place orders all around the world for most things shipping stuff can create a lot of 'food miles' which means causing a lot of carbon fuel to be consumed just to get a product to your door.

If you are interested in the whole 'Local versus Global' debate then click here to read our previous news article on that topic.

The UK Organic Directory is a nicely organised site and the City Hippies current favourite sections are the Holidays section and the Hampers section.

Holidays because frankly this City Hippy is exhausted and needs a recharge. Currently we are thinking about going camping somewhere in the UK but the Holidays section is now giving us even more holiday food for thought.

We will of course keep you all posted and report back a) on our attempts to find a green holiday that suits us and b) on the actual holiday itself.

We may even provide a picture or two when we get back. We'll see what Mrs Hippy has to say about that.

The Hampers section is calling to us because we need to get someone a gift. And sending an Organic food hamper would be such a nice gift we think. We will report back on that too when and if we go through with that idea.

The UK Organic Directory gets a City Hippy rating of 5 unsurprisingly. Exactly what I need to get greener. Go check it out at
