On Your Doorstep

A couple of interesting initiatives caught my eye recently. The first is 'Ruud Maaz', an online supermarket for organic and local goods. Here's a video (in Dutch) explaining a bit more about what they do. The second is organic produce delivery service Thijl - an initiative by 16 year old eco entrepreneur Thijl Klerkx who gave a very accomplished speech earlier today at the TEDxYouth conference in Amsterdam. Both 'Thijl' and 'Ruud Maaz' are clearly still small scale at the moment but they're charming businesses and we love the idea of shopping from our laptops and then getting organic goodies delivered to our doorstep (in an eco friendly way too). Are there organic delivery services like this in your country? Let us know. In the meantime, join us in supporting two great initiatives by following Thijl on Twitter and keeping an eye on the Ruud Maaz site for developments.
