Find Out About Energy Supplier Green Tariffs

Our Green Electricity page and associated energy supplier pages have been updated with the latest information in terms of their fuel mix and any green tariffs they offer.  You can see an overview on the Green Electricity page and go to the individual supplier pages for more details.  We hope this will continue to provide our visitors with some useful initial information when determining whether they wish to change energy supplier or tariff.  Our Energy Switch marketplace can then also be used to compare energy prices.

New Research Concludes that Organic Food Really is Better For You

A new paper due to be published next week in the British Journal of Nutrition concludes that, as many have long argued, organic produce is nutritionally better for us than non-organic.  The study was led by Newcastle University and has found that organic crops are up to 60% higher in certain key anti-oxidants than non-organic produce.  There are also a series of other benefits, and the study can ultimately draw the conclusion that farming methods do indeed affect the quality of produce. 

Find out more about the highlights of the report on the Soil Association website.  The paper will be published on the 15th July.
