What on Earth?...

I have no idea if this is genuine but this video of the Bank of AMerica reworking 'One' by U2 is absolutely shocking... how to totally rip off a beautiful song, all to celebrate the coming together of soem credit card divisions. So many corporations are so messed up. Thanks to Chris for the link.

I am trying to do my bit by supporting local businesses and shopping and banking ethically wherever I can. I would love feedback on this, but I am beginning to think that all Christians should bank with a bank with a decent ethical policy, like Smile... we only swapped relatively recently but I am so glad we finally got around to it. We have also just swapped over to Good Energy for our electricity. It is going to cost more but is well worth it, as all our electricity will be from renewable sources. And for those who are interested, our One Life reusable nappies are going very well. In fact, Daniel had a very grouchy afternoon a couple of weeks ago and we couldn't work out why. We had got behind with the washing and had to use disposables. As soon as we put him back in his reusables, he fell straight to sleep. We have renamed him EcoBoy. Even his baby wipes are called Eco Baby.

Am I going over the top, or is this every Christian's duty? Any thoughts would be great.

I don't think it's going over the top at all. I think it goes beyond being a Christian duty into straightforward common sense.

I do appear to be the last person who had the "waste is bad" mentality ingrained into me by a mother raised during rationing though.

Well done with the nappies thing. That's hard work.

I hope you don't run into any kind of problem - or are very good at turning the other cheek. Good Energy have truly terrible customer service...
