However. While hunting for the right lamp (which obviously I finally found at John Lewis) I thought I'd check out Nigel's ecostore. Generally this is a good website with lots of handy gadgets you won't have thought of all in one place. This time it also offered this:
Eco desk light 36 LEDs
This cutting edge and stylish Eco desk light by Luminair uses energy efficient LED lighting technology and environmentally-friendly, sustainable materials.
The black walnut wood used in the design is from sustainably managed forests only, which means the more wood used, the more the forests grow, as more trees are planted than harvested.Sounds lovely doesn't it? Let's mention sustainable as many times as possible. And the price? £330. I mean, bloody hell! How sustainable is that? Not for my bank balance. It's a bloody desk lamp. Gives being green and sustainable a bad name.
