Needles in the hay #6 – a few links worthy of your time

Samuel Thompson - Monday, March 26, 2012

—( ‘Do you love reading?’, with thanks to Fiduz )—Each week I put together a collection of a couple of articles, ideas and innovations that I've come across in my attempts to digest all of the information on the internet. These are some of the ones that really stood out.


// Buying British – Would You?

A survey conducted recently by The Money Saving Expert suggests that a surprising number of people would be willing to shell out more for home-grown products, be they groceries or sofas.

// The Movement Grows

A quick hop over the pond reveals a movement aiming to revolutionise American towns and make them sustainable. Contains some very interesting pages and a thought-provoking TEDX talk.

// The Demise Of Social Currency

Personal nostalgia on the part of the always-interesting Sasha Dichter, but illustrative of how much humanity has been lost from our shopping experiences.

// Supermarkets to donate surplus food?

A bill has recently been proposed which aims to get supermarkets giving excess food to charities rather than letting it go to waste. Whether it gets through or not, it's a great idea.

// Why Should One Shop Local?

The themes a big 'un, but this short post covers the key points very succinctly. Wish I'd done written it myself.

Your Moment Of Zen

// Conquering Fear

I think we've all been here (metaphorically). Good on the lass. Made me grin very widely indeed.
