Posted in Models, Movements by Ferne Edwards on July 29th, 2008

Please see a message below from Nick Ray from the Ethical Consumer Group. He refers to the 100 Mile Diet, a challenge, now a book and becoming a movement! If you’d like to be involved he’s your chance to join others!

Hi folks,
Just a quick email to let you know we are running our next “Shopping with a Conscience” Supermarket Tour this Thursday night – the 31st July.
Also for our Ethical Consumer Group in September we’ll be discussing a local trial of the 100 mile diet. See more below.
If you can pass these events on through your networks, that would be great.
