New Suma essential oil soap range, Available from the 1st September..
August 28, 2014 – 5:09 am | No Comment

Every one of these twelve new and beautiful soaps has been carefully hand crafted using a blend of olive oil, coconut oil, and shea butter. We’ve used an age-old traditional method that means each bar retains all of the soap’s naturally released glycerine. It’s a method which helps produce a wonderfully natural moisturising soap, with a rich creamy lather which is kind and nourishing to even the most sensitive of skins.

What is Airplot?

The government plans to go ahead with airport expansion across the country even though this means we’ll have no hope of meeting our climate emission targets. At full capacity, Heathrow would become the largest single source of greenhouse gas emissions in the whole country. We can’t let this happen if we are serious about tackling climate change.

We’ve bought the plot at Heathrow to make sure that climate change cannot be ignored. We will challenge the proposals every step of the way – with a building a strong community to oppose the runway, creating a legal block against any planning applications or attempts to buy the land, and if necessary physically blocking construction – standing with the people of Sipson, whose 700 homes would be flattened to build the runway, to stop the bulldozers.

We have four legal owners on the deeds: Greenpeace UK, Oscar winning actress Emma Thompson, comedian Alistair McGowan and prospective Tory parliamentary candidate Zac Goldsmith. That’s the maximum number of owners we can put on the deeds, but we’re inviting everyone to join the plot as a beneficial owner and stand beside us to resist all attempts to build the runway.

Join the Plot

We’ll be depending on thousands of people like you to join the Airplot community in the coming months and years – to put pressure on MPs, write letters to local media, join us at events, tell friends, and come up with your own ideas to make sure that everyone in the country knows that we must stop airport expansion if we are going to stop runaway climate change. Others who have signed up include local Labour MP John McDonnell, Tory frontbench spokeswoman Justine Greening, Lib Dem MP Susan Kramer, environmentalist George Monbiot and acclaimed climate scientist and Royal Society Research Fellow Dr Simon Lewis.

In truth the government has few allies outside the aviation industry on this issue. The economic benefits from Heathrow have been completely overstated by the government – only 4% of businesses feel an expanded Heathrow would be good for them, and the runway would lead to billions of pounds of climate damages. The government’s former Chief Scientific Adviser Sir David King, the head of the environment agency, Chris Smith, cabinet ministers Ed Miliband and Hillary Benn, all major opposition parties, and an increasing number of Labour MPs have all spoken out against the plans to build a third runway at Heathrow.

Now we need your help! Join the plot and help stop airport expansion
