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.
I love working with Trees For Life , a charity in Scotland who plants trees. So far Modern Mint has planted 195 trees – including pines, rowans and oaks – to do as much as we can to make the business as green as possible. You can help too – just visit the Modern Mint Grove at Trees For Life and for £6 per tree you can get some planted. I’m writing this today because of a report I saw on the BBC this morning about Tottenham being top of the sustainability table. Spurs top of the table huh? Something …
Here is an updated list of books for keen gardeners. I have enjoyed these books immensely, they range from designers and how they work to helping wildlife to thrive. And by buying from here you are helping local or independent bookshops to survive too. Here is the list – go take a look and nab something to read now!
I compiled a list of books using Bookshop, a new online shop to rival Amazon. I like it because it is supporting independent bookshops, helping them out by giving them an audience whilst their own physical premises are closed. The books I’ve listed are not all about gardening, but worth a look through and an order anyway as they are wonderful and have seen me through lockdown – and I hope they bring you some joy too! Check out the books I recommend here.
