A Year Without…

…Supermarkets.  The title of a blog I recently found, which is written by Team Pugh.

A Year Without Supermarkets.

It’s obviously all about a year without supermarkets, but please take a look at their site for more information.  They also have a Twitter feed which I follow for updates.  Their idea, and their achievement, is pretty inspiring.  They were featured on BBC Radio 4’s ‘You and Yours’ Programme on 03.04.2013 – you might still be able to find it on BBC iPlayer Radio.

The many-and-varied things this family have learned as they set out to achieve this provide much food for thought.  It has highlighted multiple issues when trying to shop ethically.  It’s interesting to consider:  How can this be applied to my situation, living in a small town…?  What are one’s priorities…?  The discussion from contributors in the comments sections also adds to the debate, and it can hurt the mind to decide what’s important!

Please head over to their blog to find lots of inspiration  🙂
