Welcome to Environmental Folklore!
This website will aim to shed some light on what is true and what is an old housewives tale in regards to the environment. For instance, is eating locally really better for our planet? Are biofuels the saviour of our transport-intensive world? Is it better to use paper or plastic bags for your shopping?
It is easy to get confused by the myriad of environmental ‘shoulds’ and ‘coulds’ in the media. But we plan to get behind the simple answers and look instead at the bigger picture – the picture with wide-ranging consequences that we know will affect every living being on this planet.
We don’t pretend to know all of the answers. But we will do our best to wade through the growing tide of information to discover the broader truths.
Please feel free to send us your comments and suggestions. Otherwise, enjoy!
