Default Ecologist News Letter

I get this every month and I thought that those who read this folder might also like to browse it;

15/02/2008

The March edition of the Ecologist is now on sale. In this issue, we take a look at how an entire culture of cheap mass produced food is coming to an end; we ask if organics can feed the world; find that 'liberalisation' is just what big business wants; look behind the label at Lucozade sport and ask if we should make wealth history.

You can buy it in many WHSmith's and independent shops.
