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

Who Killed the Electric Car?

Who Killed the Electric Car? It was among the fastest, most efficient production cars ever built. It ran on electricity, produced no emissions and catapulted American technology to the forefront of the automotive industry. The lucky few who drove it never wanted to give it up. So why did General Motors crush its fleet of EV-1 electric vehicles in the Arizona desert?

Greenvoice is a not-for-profit web site that helps people campaign on environmental issues. The website is really easy to use and was thinking it could be used to increase the promotion of the evo events.

BeReCreative June 3, 2009

London Fields, E8
Saturday June 6th, 12-6
Be ReCreative
A free, fun packed, family event is being held in London Fields on Saturday 6 June as part of national Recycle Now Week and the Love London Festival.

The BeReCreative event is a joint effort between Hackney Council’s Recycling Team and Green Champion network. Building on the success of last year’s event, this year BeReCreative promises to be bigger and better than ever.

Kids can get busy making musical instruments from recycled materials, creating their own toys at the ‘junk journeys’ stall, and getting involved with various ‘green games’. A ‘give or take’ area will let residents bring unwanted items and swap them for others. Create your own organic drink with the smoothie bike. The Bike Doctor will be on hand to offer advice to cyclists on maintaining their bicycles.

BeReCreative will be held on Saturday 6 June from 12noon-6pm in London Fields, E8. For more information, call the recycling hotline on: 020 8356 6688 or visit:
