THE MODERN MINT BLOG
We use Bulb, a 100% green energy supplier, to provide the electricity in our home and office.
It was the easiest, simplest change we could make to lower our carbon footprint and help the planet.
Are we recommending them to you?
Yes we are!
By switching today you can be provided with renewable energy at a pricer cheaper than the big 6. Switching is easy, as Bulb will:
- Take care of everything
- Never leave you without power during the switch
- Pay any exit fees from your old supplier
It takes 2 minutes to sign up, then they do the rest.
Plus, if you use this link to switch, you get £50 and so do we. Not split between us, that’s £50 each. A nice little bonus alongside doing something to reduce climate change.
We hope you will consider taking the step to switch to renewable energy. It is important we burn less fossil fuels and focus on a world of renewable energy instead.

During lockdown I went through a number of old notebooks. I found a note about Gilles Clement and The Garden In Motion – Le Jardin En Mouvement. Underneath my note I had written: “To be researched more! Something to definitely think over!” Now, five years later I have looked again… and am thrilled by this idea. The Garden In Motion is about taking a piece of unused land, and then as the gardener you make choices to do ‘as much as possible for the land and as little as possible against’ it. You are talking about limited input – watering, …
