Edition 26

What connects the West of England with deforestation in West Papua? Is there a ‘postcode lottery’ determining exposure to toxic pesticides in Bristol? Is ‘saving’ every tree nonsense?

We look at all these questions, plus more, in the Summer 2021 edition of the Bristol Cable. Now 30,000 copies of 32 pages of exclusive investigations, original opinions and solutions and making their way across Bristol.

We made a commitment to explore how big climate issues are impacting people in Bristol and beyond – using journalism as a tool to connect local and global problems, and find solutions.

These conversations simply aren’t happening in the pages of other local newspapers. We’re doing things differently, and thanks to your support of 2,600+ we can report on the issues that matter.

You can get a free copy from venues from around the city, or become a member to support independent journalism for Bristol and get a copy sent in the post
