Last week, I spent a fabulous five days at Kew Gardens, hosted by our friends from Start, a great initiative to help people across the UK lead more sustainable lives. Though a little rainy over the first fews days, I had the opportunity to talk to lots of wonderful people and the phrase that most sticks in my head as a response about Ecomodo was: “That makes perfect sense”.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank our friends from Start for all their support, as well as share some of the other fantastic initiatives that were hosted over the days at Kew. Here’s some of our favourites with great ideas to start doing things differently today!


Project Dirt is a great initiative that connects local people around local green projects.

The DoNation is all about sponsorship, with a twist and enables you to replace cash with action.

Eco-Trumps is a game for all ages that entertains while educating players on environmental issues.

MorsBags is – social, guerilla, bagging – by reusing old fabric to make new bags.

Cool it Schools enabling young people to share creative ideas and practical solutions to environmental problems.

Other organisations we loved at Start@Kew and definitely worth checking out are: Onya bags, Joju Solar, Embercombe, StreetCar, Thrifty Couture and the Soil Association’s Bee Happy Plants initiative.
