If I had a list of literary and/or movie characters I’d date, it would go something like this:
1) Mr. Darcy in Pride & Prejudice
2) Mr. Darcy in Bridget Jones’s Diary
3) Mr. Darcy in the sequel to Bridget Jones’s Diary
As many of you (female) readers probably already know, all said versions of Mr. Darcy are played by the British actor Colin Firth, who apparently has opened an eco-boutique(!) called, umm, Eco. Well, it’s the restrained, passionate, smoldering look we’re all so fond of, not the man’s creativity.
Anyway, I digress. Not only can you shop for eco-friendly home wares, but there are also in-store consultants that can help you make your home more efficient. The shop aims to be “Britain’s first ecological destination store.” I don’t know if they mean tourist destination, but this is definitely on my list for the next time I’m in London!
Unfortunately you can’t shop online (of course, you can’t stalk Mr. Darcy while pretending to be interested in bamboo-fiber curtains online, so what’s the point anyway), but you can check out an article about the store from the Times Online.
