Would you like to do something about climate change, or sweatshops, or eating better food, but, well, you know... You're busy, things come up, your forget, you don't where to start...
Well, we found something that might help. The Nag. This is a great new initiative where if you sign up on line, you'll get a little email reminder (or nag) which will tell you one easy thing you can do to be greener, cleaner, and if you want - a little bit smug about how good you are. Nag subjects vary from energy, flying and food through to chemicals, clothes and money. You are given a choice about doing each month’s nag - be it turning down your thermostat, switching to green energy or getting an ethical bank account - or simply skipping it until the next month’s nag arrives. The Nag team track what people are doing, measure the calculable impacts and then display it on a nifty map so you can see the difference that we have all made.
The idea is that a few people doing small things are drops in the ocean. However, thousands of drops, can together make a big wave (of difference, that is)… we like it.
