Supermarkets should also donate more unused goods to food banks, says report by Lords

Supermarkets should move away from offers such as "buy one get one free" to help end the "morally repugnant" waste of millions of tonnes of food, a House of Lords committee has said.

The folk hero Minneapolis deserves, but St. Paul needs 31.3.2014 MinnPost
Stubble It’s more-or-less a fact that, in the brotherhood of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minneapolis is the free-wheelin’ younger brother to St. Paul’s stodgy, uptight big brother. You can practically imagine St. Paul straightening its glasses while telling Minneapolis not to have a party while their parents are away. A Minnesota state guide from the ‘30s said it best when it claimed that “St. Paul has already attained a degree of mellowness and seems to be clinging to its Victorian dignity, while in Minneapolis dignity is less prized than modern spruceness.” Apparently, little has changed in 80 years. So if you had to guess which city was founded by a mysterious, one-eyed bootlegger named Pig’s Eye, Minneapolis would be the odds-on favorite. That’s why it comes as such a surprise that St. Paul (which unfortunately shed the Pig’s Eye name in 1841) has the decidedly more badass founding story of the two cities. Pierre Parrant, reportedly a French-Canadian fur trapper, first settled in the ...

B&Q to ditch plastic plant trays for biodegradable 'teabags' 31.3.2014 Guardian: Environment
UK's biggest garden retailer to sell bedding plants in up to 95% peat-free compost within trays made from corn starch and coir

The UK's largest garden retailer is to ditch plastic trays used for bedding plants and replace them with biodegradable "teabag-style" packaging which will allow plants to be placed straight into the ground.

The move by B&Q is part of its drive to make gardening more environmentally friendly. The retailer has also committed to removing peat from all its horticultural products. The so-called "Easygrow" technology roots each bedding plant in up to 95% peat-free compost and will be incorporated into 20 varieties of bedding plants at the peak planting time this spring.
