This originated with me sending regular emails to my close friends and family on environmental issues and changes which could ‘green’ their lifestyle. The group has unintentionally grown quickly as friends of friends ask to join. The EcoEmails don’t always give people an easy solution to a problem but try to make them aware that every decision they make has environmental and sustainability consequences. If you would like to join pls email me at

Thai monks from the Sisaket province have used over one million recycled glass bottle to construct their Buddhist temple. Using Heineken bottles (green) and Chang Beer bottles (brown) the monks were able to clean up the local pollution and create a useful structure that will be a visual reminder of the scope of human pollution, but also human ingenuity.

Try to reuse things – it takes little or no energy to reuse something….
More energy to recycle it – as you have to reprocess it…
And way more energy to make it from scratch….
(Re-gifting xmas presents could be a way of recycling!?!)
