we have started NET, a network of entrepreneurial talent in london following the blah... day a while back with bill bolton. last night was an informal get together in the bar of the hms president. as part of the evening reid shared the story of belu water. it is a company that sells bottled water BUT the bottles are made from corn so bio degradable, and it's non-profit so monies made are going in to projects such as drilling wells in india. reid said that they have worked to get a zero carbon footprint. the business is expanding and have got water on the shelves in both tescos and waitrose. if there is one near you ask them to stock it. or if you have bottled water at your business suggest switching to belu. i remember first coming across belu at the big chill festival last year.
if you are interested in NET there will be a monthly get together in june and july and more stuff happening in the autumn. just leave me a comment if you want info.
I'd be really interested in hearing more... I was gutted I couldn't make the last (and what would have been my first) blah on the hms. Was there any recordings made that day?
