Wow! We've been busy at ecoescape HQ since our launch! So much so that I'm going to give a few highlights of the past few weeks...

The weekend following the launch Richard Hammond wrote a lovely article about ecoescape in the Guardian entitled 'Green Grass of Home' - a great end to a spectacular launch week. The Guardian Travel feature elequently summed up ecoescape's vision to help people see the world with new eyes starting right here on our doorsteps.

The following week, more press attention followed incuding the Times, and the BBC. Innocent Drinks featured ecoecape in their weekly news and gave 20 guides away as competition prizes. Calverts our green printers also gave some copies away as prizes.

Easter weekend saw glorious sunshine and whilst the temptation to escape to the country was great, unfortunately work had to be done at ecoescape HQ. Nonetheless seeing an opportunity to get creative in the garden, we turned two old pallets on which ecoescape was shipped into a very unique book shelf (right).

This week we visited the London Book Fair at Earl's Court - a good opportunity to get to grips with the latest publishing trends. Andrew Greenman, ecoescape's director has put his thoughts down on paper about the day and in particular following the seminars we attended at this link including the latest on digital travel publishing.

Still basking in sunshine, yesterday was a big day for ecoescape as we took to Atte
nborough Nature Centre to make the first ever film of the project. The nice boys at String Films took all manner of equipment to the Centre to capture history in the making... The famous bicycle trailer took centre stage (much to my dismay) but all the same I am excited about the finished product which will feature on the website shortly.
