ecoescape launches!

Yesterday was the official launch day of ecoescape. To mark the occasion the ecoescape bicycle trailer took its maiden voyage to deliver copies of ecoescape around the capital starting in Bethnal Green, East London. Stops along the way included Duke of Cambridge pub and the Britain and London visitor centre taking the Regent's Canal to Islington.

Next to Regent's Canal showing off the ecoescape tee-shirt and the trailer!

Outside the Britain and London Visitor Centre checking the route back.

Events were then followed by launch drinks (rhubarb bellinis to be precise!) at Acorn House Restaurant, one of the green
businesses featured in ecoescape. The restaurant opened in 2006 and follows strict sustainability principles. A delicious menu followed and a great time was had by all (suffering a little bit today mind you).

Congratulations on following through with this fantastic idea. I've often wondered whether it's really appropriate to fly to, say, Laos for an eco-getaway... My wife and I read about your web site in Saturday's Guardian and will be researching for an eco-trip in the UK later this year. Good luck with your venture.

Hi Laura

Congratulations on your launch and, as jt says, well done!

I'm currently coordinating the biggest free eco-festival in London and it would be brilliant if you could be there (with the bike and publication of course!). Some of the folks you mention will be involved, including the lovely Acorn House. Let me know if you fancy it... Best of luck with the project.

Hi Charlie, I am in fact doing a summer festival tour with bicycle and guides, so would love to come to the eco-fest in London. Drop me an email with some more details
thanks! Laura
