V-DAY NAGGING

valentines_nag

Being selfish and vile, we are not usually the types to subscribe to charity / conciousness-raising type websites. But when The Nag does things so cutely, how can you resist?

Its Valentines' Nag gently nudges you to send a posy of snowdrops to your lover this V-Day, rather than roses. Snowdrops are grown wild in UK woodlands, without pesticides, then wrapped in moss and sent to your sweetheart, who can replant them and watch them flower year after year.

Meanwhile, roses are grown by underpaid Kenyan workers in foreign-owned companies, using water from a country that hardly has any, then sprayed with chemicals, wrapped in plastic, and flown overseas (mega carbon footprint alert) to land up sitting in a bucket outside the BP service station on the motorway on the way home. Nice.

Sign up for The Nag and it'll send you a nag such as this once a month. (Even we can handle that.) And oh, the site's adorable! Cute design, a gentle but not cloying copytone, its information served in easily digestible little snippets. No wonder it won a Yahoo Search Finds of the Year award thingy. Check it out now!
