We’re going to be running Vegbox as usual over Christmas and New Year. Do let us know soon if you’re going to be away as we’ll need to order from our farms and wholesalers well in advance over this period.
Your Festive Season job (as well as making merry and eating lots of sprouts) is to make sure you sign the European Citizen’s Initiative petition against TTIP.
TTIP stands for the ‘Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership’. It is a secretive trade deal being negotiated between the EU and the US and will have devastating consequences for food safety and environmental sustainability if it is passed, as well as locking in the privatisation of public services and giving corporations the right to sue governments for loss of profits owing to democratic decisions that don’t go their way.
