Just discovered this lovely film about a florist in London's East End who delivers her bouquets by bicycle and donates £1 from every bunch of flowers to beekeepers....

I'm so one for gorgeous lighting set ups in my interiors. I HATE overhead lights in rooms (I sort of get a wee bit nauseous) and love playing with table and floor lamps and dimmer switches.
This week is Big Energy Saving Week so... Here's some more info for those of you reluctant to switch out incandescent bulbs for the more 'expensive' LED lights in your home... this is The Big Picture, the Long Term Solution.... The Low Down.... oh you get the idea...

I'm often invited to post pages that advertise a green-ish, eco-ish or sustainable products, but often those peeps don't get the remit here: -
It is: how do we live a sustainable and stylish life with as little impact on the planet as possible - and without living in a field in Cornwall peeing into a compost toilet... well, I think MIMOSA STREET may be onto something. Have a click on the links and you decide....
The very stylish website offers a unique mix of jewellery (much of it handmade), accessories and lovely objects for the home. The product mix is unique because they source items directly from small independent suppliers, artists and designers. (nice!)
Mimosa Street loves to celebrate individuality and support emerging talent on the design-front, because while beauty and quality are at the heart of everything they do, they believe that where something comes from matters too. And that’s also the reason you’ll find plenty of lovely and unusual ethically-sourced items from around the world at Mimosa Street. (click here now!)
There’s a widespread misconception that if something is fair trade or eco-friendly then it’ll be dowdy, hackneyed or lacking in style, but they aim to dispel this by offering a range of beautiful objects for the home which are as lovely to look at as they are ethically sound. (yup!)
There's a collection of products made from recycled glass. In a landfill site, a glass bottle will take more than a million years to biodegrade (if it biodegrades at all), so our vases, tealights and carafes, which are both fair trade and made from recycled glass are the height of eco chic. (gotta love that!)
They are a new company and have lots of new and interesting stock on the way, so please support them and watch them as they continue to grow...

This little film was made a few years ago. I can't believe I haven't seen it 'til now. All of my friends know how much I love being GREEN and PUGS, so this is the PERFECT combination *wipestear*
