Recycling our Future

24 July 2018

There is a lot in the media at the moment regarding recycling, where is it ending up, possibly in landfill or even being burned. So it feels like an ideal time to mention Ranjit S. Baxi's book Recycling our Future, a global strategy. This book is about the forces and drivers that impact upon the recycling business – it is about the practicalities. By understanding exactly how the recycling system works, who is benefiting and who is suffering, then we will at least be better informed and perhaps take different decisions, not only about what we consume but also how we deal with what is discarded.

The truth behind the murder on Little Ross

11 August 2017

This beautiful island has had a huge amount of media coverage recently due to it being for sale and its horrid past

‘The sale of a beaufiful island has led to a retired architect recalling the fateful day he discovered the corpse of a lighthouse keeper killed in one of Scotland’s most notorious murders’. The Scotsman

‘Idyllic Scottish island up for sale for just £325k – but it has a chilling past’ The Telegraph

‘This stunning Scottish island is up for sale...but it has a VERY dark past’ Manchester Evening News

‘Scottish island for sale...but hides a grisly secret past’ Express

‘For Sale: Little Ross Island, where lighthouse keeper Hugh Clark was found dead’ The Times

Our author David Collin, who has appeared on BBC Reporting Scotland, BBC Radio Scotland, was on the island the day of the murder and also a witness in the High Court trial that followed.

David’s new book, Life and Death on Little Ross, which will be out in October,  reveals the truth of what happened that day on Little Ross and he also tells the history and life of the island.
