Here are some East Anglia green links to represent some of the excellent eco organisations in the east of England.
"Think globally, act locally" was the mantra of the Rio Earth Summit. So, I'm putting a few links to East Anglian sites which have an environmental and/or alternative health care emphasis. There are quite a few interesting initiatives around here! In fact, one of the pioneers of the organic movement, Eve Balfour, started her work in Suffolk.
