Meat: The Truth

This not-so-little number is a comprehensive report on how and why meat consumption is a major public health concern. It reveals evidence that red, white and processed meat offers no health benefits and are linked to heart disease, diabetes, cancer and other diseases. It explains that meat causes food poisoning, and how BSE, bird-flu and antibiotic-resistant superbugs pose an increasing threat we can't afford to ignore.

    Go Electric

    21st March 2017


    The car companies conned us all. They’ve been selling us diesel vehicles that they claimed were the “green” choice.

    But they lied. They manipulated emissions tests and sold us diesel cars that emit far more toxic fumes than they are supposed to. [1] As a result, they have made air pollution worse.

    Over the next few months, 75 brave activists will participate, learning how to use the internet more effectively in their fights for equality across Africa. They’ll receive advice on how to ensure their safety and privacy online.

    Your Plastic Footprint Shopping

    13th March 2017

    Plastic is everywhere in our daily lives. I'm writing this on a computer with plastic parts, using a plastic keyboard powered through a plastic plug. You'll be reading this on something similar, or maybe on a plastic mobile phone.

    You're needed - Greenpeace

    6th March 2017

    After 5 weeks of campaigning, HSBC have just said that they'll stop funding rainforest destruction. It's amazing - but it's also an amazing opportunity to make sure other banks start cleaning up their act too. When our friends or peers do something good, it can often make us feel the pressure to do the same thing - and these banks reputations…
