Guardian journalist Leo Hickman is embarking on a bid to live as ethically as possible and has had his lifestyle + consumption patterns assessed by experts from Friends of the Earth, the Soil Association and Ethical Consumer magazine.
Apparently the experts queried Leo's use of a supermarket, his foreign holidays + his (inefficient?) washing machine.
Even so Leo remains optimistic that there are plenty of things for him to begin doing, and that it won't be necessary to become a hermit on a remote mountain top or to completely opt out of the rat race...
As you'll see here + here Earth-Info.Net agrees that there's plenty we can all do in terms of considering what + how much we consume, and we wish Leo well...
I will also try to keep you posted with Leo's progress over the coming months.
In the mean time if you have any ethical suggestions, you are invited to email Leo here.
