Greenwich Goings On

Today I’m thinking about a whole bunch of different stuff that people have been mailing me about recently – I’d normally look at these individually, but there’s just so much exciting/curious/interesting here, that I’m having to combine it before it all goes off the boil…

Firstly, P&D has pointed out that Sainsburys seems to be slowly forgetting its green ideasl:

“I don’t know if Sainsbury’s eco credentials are under threat but I noticed today that the wind turbines in the car park at their peninsula site have been removed. Are they abandoning their much hyped eco store or merely upgrading the infrastructure?”

I confess I hadn’t noticed – but the last time I walked underneath those turbines in high winds was a bit scary. I also noticed that the electric car points have gone – presumably no one used them – they’re now just used as parking spaces by 4x4s. I can’t really see that Sainsburys have their hearts in eco-friendship – it was imposed upon them when they wanted to open at the Peninsula and now, I suspect, they’re quietly dropping it. Let’s face it – if they were really looking for ways to be green, they’d have put doors and lids on their freezers/fridges during the recent refit…
