Lucky chocolates

I rarely win prizes. So when the little package arrived in the post this morning, I delighted at its contents - Choco La La Chocolates! Described as chocolates of gorgeousness, I soon found myself trying hard to resist eating them all in one go.

I won the chocolates on the Green Union website, as I'm trying to organise my green wedding for 2009. Signing up to a newsletter was little effort for my reward of Choco La La. The chocolates are all fairtrade and created to the highest eco standards - no plastic packaging here. Just minimal paper and a cool funky tin that I'll no doubt find a use for.

So it's back to the chocolates and luckily I have a year to go before I have to fit into that all important wedding dress.

Having worked on the ecoescape book, I've got to know lots of budget and green travel ideas in the UK, particularly for families. So in the article, I've given a few ideas and tips for budget and eco-travel just on our doorsteps.

We can save money AND go green! Hurrah!
