There’s some interesting reading around at the moment. These three are a mix of the positive and, in the case of the Telegraph article, the scarily negative:

  • The Telegraph reports that an Australian conference has been told that the world’s “most precious resource”, soil, could be devastatingly depleted in just 60 years, at current rates of abuse…
  • It seems environmental groups have had a positive impact on the GM debate in Bulgaria, gaining government support for protection measures for organic and sensitive areas as the country revisits its laws on the subject. This from organic-market.info
  • And from the same source as the Bulgaria story, we turn our attention to Wales, where companies are being invited to tender for the opportunity to write a report on consumer attitudes to organics, an area of research that can definitely benefit from improved insight.
