As mentioned earlier, we were at the launch of the Big Green Picnic last week. All the Island’s movers and shakers as far as green issues and sustainability go, were there to hear what the council is planning for the One Big Picnic, their high profile environmental event in May.
After David Pugh and Joe Duckworth had given their speeches, we worked our way through the audience or pounced on people queuing to make their ‘green pledge’ (everyone was invited to strip their plates of meat and have their
souls soles painted green before slapping them down on sheets of paper), to grab some vox-pops.
We asked one simple question ….
“What does Eco-Island mean to you?”

We want to hear everyone’s view. Now you’ve heard what it means to some of the people above, why not tell us what it means to you. Leave us a comment.
