I find them really helpful. I'm part of a Green Team in an office in Jamaica, and I circulate all them to my colleagues. They particularly like the money-saving tips!"

Tip of the Day is fantastic! Since signing up I have switched my soap, registered for Freecycle and persuaded my boyfriend that if we ever get a garden we will house some ex-battery hens. It's a great, great idea, keep up the excellent work.
