At age 19, Devine uprooted her life in the rural town of Newcastle to move to the English metropolis, selling her car in order to make her first couple of month's rent. This was a massive gamble; aside from the school friend she moved in with, Devine didn't know anyone in London and almost applied to work at the supermarket across the street until the major labels eventually came knocking.

Just when you thought it was safe to conclude that NRDC and the Environmental Worthless Working Group 1 had perfected the art of the corporate shakedown, all of a sudden there's a new sheriff in town, and his guns are blazing. Here is the group's mission statement left and my personal interpretation of it right.
