For Free

I wrote this originally as an email to my fellow students on the Ashridge Master’s in Sustainability and Responsibility. It was just a moment’s inspiration but it connected with quite a few people. I thought it might be worth sharing with a wider group. Saturday morning. I was doing my round of food shopping, which […]
