“At Bike Box people can deliver food by bicycle. We believe cycling is the best way to transport veg boxes to people and restaurants around the city; where panniers (bike mounted bags) are more common than plastic bags! What’s more… young people can make money by staying fit and healthy, having fun and lowering London’s carbon footprint. “
A good initiative for growing food in the city, for sustainable transportation, for creating social links between people, for providing a small income to young people, for health and wellbeing! Everything is positive for Bike Box!

“Room for Tea is a new kind of home-sharing network they call it “Sociable Housing”. It connects professional, friendly guests with spare rooms offered by equally friendly hosts for short periods of time.
In turn, they link guests to other guests and hosts to other hosts, increasing social and professional networks.”
Basically it connects people in London (elderly people, single parents, and others) that have a spare room with interns having their first professional experience.
I would be testing this service next week and I am looking forward to this, I’ll give you news about it soon.
