Encourage your staff to participate in sustainable practices by signing your company up to 'DoNation' who encourage people to pledge sustainable efforts rather than money, and you can even set up inter-branch competitions as encouragement to the terminally competitive - http://www.thedonation.org.uk/companies

BusinessGreen reports that David Cameron has asked DEFRA to look into whether recent severe weather events and flooding in the UK have been exacerbated by climate change.

According to BusinessGreen, the Prime Minister even went so far as to say that he "very much suspects" increased incidents of extreme weather are linked to climate change. 

In 2012 the Government released its UK risk assessment for climate change. Click here to see our piece on what it might mean for live entertainment, starting with flooding.

It began in Naples, Italy, as small anonymous gifts of a cup of coffee to someone who couldn't afford to buy a hot drink themselves; the custom became known as 'caffe sospeso' or 'suspended coffee'. It has recently begun to spread across the globe.

The story goes that it became particularly popular after WWII, when many men returning from the war didn't have enough money to buy what was considered a necessity for existence in Neapolitan society. Gentlemen who had enough money would buy a 'caffe sospeso'; then if someone came in who perhaps didn't really have enough money the Barista would say 'Would you like a coffee, Sir?' meaning 'there is a coffee paid for you if you can't afford one'.

If you would like your establishment, or one you know to take part then tell them to check out the coffee sharing website to sign up - http://www.coffeesharing.com/

Should food labeling come with details of the supply chain of the product? In the wake of the horse meat scandal the Guardian Sustainable Business pages discuss whether this would be practical; and should it be rolled out to include other products such as clothes? - http://www.guardian.co.uk/sustainable-business/food-labels-supply-c...

I've stumbled upon Garden Organic's 'One Pot Pledge'. A campaign to get people, even if they only have space for one pot on a windowsill, to grow a bit of their own food. You can take their pledge and become a member, and they will send you hints, tips and support to get you from planting to harvesting, why not have a go - http://www.onepotpledge.org/
