Eat Local London features On the Move Organics
We've often put an order in with On the Move and have always appreciated the food and the friendliness that Eat Local mentions...

Food, Inc. to hit London's Hyland Cinema October 9th

Bonus points if anyone can find a way to get the Hyland to pop local kernels covered for the duration of the show's run :)

Green bins on hold?
The LFP has a great little op-ed on the amount of time it's taking the city to adopt a green-bin program for compostable household "waste."

Wow, it's shocking to me that we've had organic waste bins ahead of London. My experience with them has been so fantastic. I live in an apartment, and can't have a composter of my own, so this has been a great next best solution.

Between the organics bin and recycle bins, I put out a bag of garbage once every 12-15 weeks. Needless to say, it's made a big difference.
