2021 has thus far seen a range of dramatic weather events. We’ve seen the apocalyptic rain in Germany and parts of Belgium and the Netherlands that claimed 200 lives. Click into this Economist article and you’ll see a photograph that will take your breath away – but not in a good way. It rams home the unimaginable destruction they’ve suffered there. We’ve seen too the fearful fires blazing across the Mediterranean region, resulting from record-breaking summer heatwaves. All of which has prompted me to flag up Greenpeace Day 2001 which is on the 15th September. And hot on its heels from the 20th – 26th September is national recycling week.
Ways in which to be kind
There’s been much talk during the ongoing Covid pandemic of being kinder to oneself and to others. After all, as this blog about Covid anxiety tips points out, it’s only human to feel anxious during a global crisis on the scale of the COVID-19 pandemic. So, we thought we’d have a look at the word itself – what it means.
The sun beamed down on us through lockdown and it’s been a decent summer overall. But now autumn approaches and with it our thoughts turn to the harvest and nature’s bounty. And that’s something that we at Pink&Green make the most of in our products.

Crucial to any business, big or small, is keeping the customer satisfied. And I’ll admit that, achieving customer satisfaction is easier for Pink&Green as a moderate sized business, than it is for a ginormous multi-national. But that doesn’t mean we don’t work at it.
As Mike Kappel writes in this 2017 article, being small lets you reach people on a deeper personal level than big businesses. And that in turn, turns into stronger customer relationships – something that Pink&Green has worked hard to foster.
In one of our recent blogs, A New Normal, we examined the idea of the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic bringing with it opportunities along with the losses. Opportunities to examine our old normal for practices we want to keep and those we want to discard, as we move into the post-Covid new normal. But of course, knowing that you don’t want to go back to how things were is one thing. Working out the getting from now to tomorrow can be quite another. Put another way – how can you work out what you want from this point? And what do you need to do to get there?
Thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic of 2020, we’re all of us sailing in uncharted waters. Forced into a mixture of social distancing and lockdown measures as the UK government strives to minimise the effect of the virus of our NHS. So, one way or another many of us are pondering on what is most loved in our lives.
