Dreaming of a Green Christmas: Buying stuff and being green - a contradiction? We are not anti-consumption, it's Christmas after all, but we could all spend more wisely. We will all probably receive or give some item of clothing or electronics this holiday, so this month, we look at where key fashion brands and Apple stand on water pollution, discuss sustainable apparel with Patagonia, and seek advice from Redress on where and what to buy. 

The recent panic with Evian & Volvic failing China quality tests and worm eggs reportedly found in bottles of Nongfu Spring water in a shop in Beijing leads us to question whether it's time to invest in water filters? Happy Holidays!
