The Co-operative Magazine releases results of latest online poll

The Co-operative Magazine has revealed the result of its latest web-based poll, which asked readers ‘how much of your weekly shop goes in the bin?’

Of those magazine readers who took part in the survey, 61 per cent stated that less than 10 per cent of products from their weekly food shop go in the bin. This is contrary to the national findings, which suggest that the majority of households in the UK waste around a quarter (25 per cent) of their food each week.

“These results suggest that our readers are shrewder and less wasteful than the national average,” said Jeanette Franks, editor of the magazine.

“With tips on how to cut your weekly shopping bill and features on how to make delicious meals using leftovers, our readers have the information they need to ensure that they only buy what they need and they therefore end up using the majority of it each week. We encourage people to shop more frequently and only buy the items they need, rather than doing a big weekly shop which inevitably leads to wasted food and money,” Franks added.

Other related articles and features in The Co-operative Magazine include: A Quick Guide to Recycling in the Home, and Waste Not Want Not, both in the ethical living section, as well as low-fat meal ideas and tips for how to keep the kids health and happy.

The online magazine aims to be interesting and informative, as well as to bring daily news on a wide variety of subjects, from fairtrade and the recent E-Coli outbreak, to the state of the housing market and the latest news in travel and leisure. It also gives readers the chance to browse a huge variety of features and guides and to leave their own tips and comments for fellow readers to benefit from. The online magazine is interactive and many people have already made reading it a part of their daily routine.

Tantra for Erotic Empowerment (Llewellyn Worldwide, ISBN: 073871197) by Mark A. Michaels and Patricia Johnson has been named a National Best Books 2008 Award Winner in the Health: Sexuality category, and is an award-winning finalist in the Religion: Eastern Religions category.

Tantra for Erotic Empowerment guides readers to sexual self-empowerment. Michaels and Johnson, who developed this book based on nine years of experience as Tantra teachers, share experiential methods for gaining self-knowledge and a comprehensive understanding of one’s own sexuality. In Tantra for Erotic Empowerment Michaels and Johnson take their readers on a Tantric journey of sexual self-discovery and show them how to experience pleasure with consciousness and intention and thereby enrich all aspects of their lives.

Featuring selections from Tantric literature for reflection, meditations, exercises, and practical techniques for exploring sexuality, plus a foreword from award-winning author, columnist, editor, and film director Tristan Taormino, Tantra for Erotic Empowerment is a practical handbook for anyone interested in exploring his or her own sexuality and having a more fulfilling life.
