Why you can’t trust the Guardian on Palm Oil

When I first became aware of the palm oil issue, I was pleased to see that the problems caused by the industry were regularly raised in the Guardian newspaper. But as with most things, there always comes a time when you have to take a step back and remember that you can’t believe everything you read in the press. At the moment, fires rage in Indonesia, filling neighbouring countries with a polluting smog, destroying rainforests and killing birds and animals in their millions. I found it odd that this was the time the Guardian chose to run an article about palm oil…

One of the highlights of my week away was popping into the workshop at Wyatt and Jack to buy some gorgeous new designer handbags made entirely from reclaimed materials. We all enjoyed the beach, especially Bubbles who is now a huge fan of the water. So much so, I think I’ve found myself a new open water swimming buddy. For the girls, the beach was all about buckets and…
