In this month’s edition, we cast an eye on our beleaguered planet and suggest some sustainable strategies to help serve its survival.

You will find much food for thought in these pages, with features on Experimental Utopias, Sustainable Wood as a Building Material and Global Food Security. We also bring you the World’s Greenest cities, Alternative Lifestyle Bloggers, and the Pininfarina H2 Speed, a dynamic supercar concept powered by a hydrogen fuel cell.

It’s not all gloom in the Beauty industry either, as we determine from H&M’s Conscious label offering sustainable style, Rituals Body Cosmetics and the rise of Dry Shampoos.

Closer to home, Bass Houses present their ecological construction solutions, we indulge at Shanti-Som Wellbeing Retreat’s delightfully healthy restaurant, Samsara, take a trip to Ronda to discover Bodega F. Schatz’s range of highly acclaimed organic wines, and learn about the statutes protecting trees in Marbella.

Elsewhere, don’t miss our visits to Swans International School, Dr Arques’ new clinic in Marbella and Laguna Beach Restaurant, where José López concocts tender perfection via cooking underground.
