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

Here is some shameless plugging.

My friend Casson has just published a book called
Sustainable Sushi: A Guide to Saving the Oceans One Bite at a Time (Paperback)

And you can buy it from Amazon for £7.83

So quick get one fast while stocks last (no pun intended!?!)

Also if any of you are ever in San Fransisco or know anyway who is there then send them to his sustainable sushi restaurant.
It is the best sushi I have ever eaten (and for those who know nick know that that is allot!)
