It's not easy being an eco-bus!

Brigit Strawbridge, star of BBC2 series Its Not Easy Being Green, will be talking about her new charity project, The Big Green Idea, at RWM. During the documentary series, camera crew followed Strawbridges family as they constructed a water wheel and wind turbine, grew vegetables and raised their own pigs. Due to this experience, Strawbridge has launched The Big Green Idea, to spread the sustainable life ideal to more people via an eco-friendly bus. She said: The aim of The Big Green Idea is to reach people who want to change by bringing the message to them in an attractive, hands-on, inspirational way. Starting in London, the double-decker bus which runs on bio-diesel, will tour towns and cities across the UK. Some items that will feature on the bus will include wormeries, a solar-powered cinema, composting systems and recycled garden containers. Stawbridge said: I have learned over the last few years that there are many ways we can all make a difference whatever our circumstances, and I would like to pass this knowledge on to other people. All we need to live a greener life is the will to change some of our habits and a little bit of help to know how to do this without it costing us a fortune or making our lives more difficult than they already are! Brigit will be speaking at 2pm on Tuesday September 11 the RWM seminar theatre. Visit for more information.
