Green Co-operation

Co-operatives are re-enforcing their green credentials.

Co-operative Insurance (CIS) are sponsoring "The Green Car Show" at the Eden Project 30th March - 15th April. If you are down in Cornwall at Easter you could check out the vehicles that use ethanol or electricity. Buy some carbon offsets from the Co-op Group Travel Agents and so not feel guilty by flying to Newquay from Manchester on Air SouthWest.

Also at Easter,
Mukti Mitchell will start sailing around Britain in a zero-emission microyacht to promote low carbon lifestyles. Link. He's being sponsored by the Phone Co-op. He doesn't appear to be sailing up the Ship Canal but he does land at Liverpool on May 10th.
