This week’s show is all about SHASAP: Shopping As Sustainably As Possible, and we talk to Uncle Ed Walker – a Wadi Wadi elder now living in the Blue Mountains – about his budding business building lovely children’s toys and furniture using reclaimed materials. There’s a voxpop on plastic bags from participants of the Springwood Foundation Day celebrations. GLObal TV SHOw health editor Margaret Shearer talks about Shopping ASAP at Bathurst farmers’ market and food co-op, author of Life Without Money Anitra Nelson talking about exactly that, Blue Mountains local gardener Steve Erntner on what to plant for winter down under. From the team in Northern Ireland we hear from Frank McCooke of Slemish Market Garden. Also, we discuss some of the Green Washing being done by certain chain stores and multinationals vs. REAL sustainability action in business, tips from the Slow Food movement on how to reduce your carbon footprint when grocery shopping, and just in time for Easter, information on why we should all be buying Fair Trade chocolate.
