NEWS: London Paper Goes Green-ish
New freesheet The London Paper launched this week and I was delighted to discover a daily GreenLondon section.
The paper is a NewsInternational paper, hence the tabloid look and the mandatory use of the word 'Pervs' on the front cover he he he.
Currently it seems that their site is still under development as the Green London section does not appear to be working yet.
But today, to give you a sample, with links of my own for more information where I could find them, the GreenLondon section included two headline articles on 'how pollution is affecting Polar Bears fertility' and that 'a majority of adults would eat junk to ensure their kids get organic produce' which I think is from the Soil Association to mark Organic Fortnight. Incidentally just found this great debate about organic versus conventional farming from Waitrose.
And in their smaller 'Green-ish' sub-section I learned that 'Britain used to be a tough place to live in Prehistoric Times', read coverage of 'Al Gore's speech in Finland' and finally discovered the news that 'almost 30 projects to educate people about Climate Change have been approved by the Government' as part of a wider campaign.
Delighted to see a paper devote a whole page every day (from what I can tell) to green issues, ish ;)
UPDATE: I now also recall that the other London Freepaper, Metro, given away in the morning has a weekly (or occasional) green page. I will watch out for the next one and give it the same sort of mention to be fair.
