Good Energy

The guys at Good Energy have been really supportive and excited about the expedition, so much so that they have made a contribution which allows me to keep the blog regularly updated during the expedition, so they and everyone else can follow the journey. Good Energy supplies 100% renewable electricity sourced from wind, water, sun and sustainable biomass. CO2 from coal-fired electricity generation is one of the largest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions in the world. Switch your electricity supply to Good Energy using this link and not only will you be supporting the pioneering community of independent green generators, but for every sign up they get they’ll make another donation to help get the bus around the world. It helps you cut your personal CO2 emissions, helps them grow a great business, and helps me get round the world.

Education For All

I met with Neil last month and have been meaning to post about this since then.

Neil's company refurbishes schools, and rather than landfill all the old furniture, fittings computers, Neil has established a charity to warehouse them and then container them out to schools in the developing world on request.

When a school closes for refurbishment, the resources which were perfectly fit for purpose one minute, are suddenly classed as waste, and go from being an asset to a burden.

Neil's enterprising project works on an amazing scale.
