NEWS: Go on...take a bite!

Victor Kiam once famously said: I liked the shaver so much, I bought the company. Well City Hippy has had a similar moment.

A fellow green blogger,, has invited us to promote their Green Lifestyle Daily Tip newsletter.

The deal is simple: we get people to sign up to their newsletter and they give us a small commission. Seems fair but we would not recommend something to you without checking it out first. So we did just that.

And, having checked it out, like Victor, we buy it. The newsletter, not the company.

Here is why we like the tip and recommend that you sign up for it.

Across about 25 categories (including Clothes, Food, Travel & Home care) these folks are sending out serious tips combining interesting facts / information, practical advice and places to go online for solutions.

Their tips will certainly help us live that greener life we seek. Some things they mention are easy to do whilst some are tough - some cost nothing whilst some require effort and resources.

Looking through their archive I think our favourite is the Want to change the world? Change your shirt to organic cotton or hemp! Hard to pick a fav but that one is just a great example of how easy it is to be an ethical consumer and how that impacts upon our world.

Another good example especially in light of our recent Starbucks Challenge is the sample tip: Feeling a little confused about the different labels you see when buying coffee beans? Very useful.

So we have signed up. We hope you do to: simply click the image below. And if you do sign up City Hippy gets a bit of money love. Which is nice!
