These are the stories we tell: the need to cast adaptation as a “narrative”

The world of the future will be hotter, wetter and a more challenging place to live. This is not a message one would call an “easy sell”. And yet, how can the public absorb this message and not be terrified? More importantly how can we help stimulate discussion and action? The answer – I believe […]

9 Tips to Green your Washing Machine

I recently came by the following post, which I thought coupled well with part two of the series looking into eco-mapping: Water loss, providing a more detailed look at how you can reduce water use (and ultimately money) in the laundry.
