Colin Firth will soon be turning in his bangers and mash for something new: organic bangers and mash. That’s right mate, Firth, along with brother in law Nicola Giuggiolis, is opening an “ecological destination store” next week in west London. What in the world is an ecological destination store? Well, just that. Firth’s shop will include a spectrum of environmentally friendly and world healthy products that are impressive enough to make even Daryl Hannah crack a nut.

From a computer made of bamboo to Estonian Christmas decorations ( an obvious must have on any Christmas list), Firth is practicing what he preaches by not only selling earth conscious items, but setting a new precedent for “green” London. The pollution free paradise will be Britain’s first and only self-sustainable building by way of sun, plants and solar heating. “We want this to be a good place to meet, and enjoy, as well as learn how to improve the planet”, says Giuggiolis. So in the spirit of education (liquid “u” of course), there will also be solar panels, wind turbines and a green-roof insulation system installed for each guest to explore on their own.

A little bit Hollywood, a little bit Britain, there’s no question that Colin Firth is putting his money where his mouth is. Now if only he could fix that nasty food.

    The Colin Firth story got me thinking about my Christmas tree this year…I’d like to do a sustainable theme and start building my ornament collection wisely. I’ve found some websites (like One World Projects) with some great stuff, but how do you know if your purchases are really benefiting fair trade participants? It would be awesome if you guys could put together a list of “noble” organizations or link to somewhere that could give a good referral on this topic. Thanks!
