Feedback on A Dedicated Hater of Fashion

From Bob Todd, Dumfries, Scotland, Friday, February 23, 2001

I get what you mean about "fashion" but have you ever thought about what drives greed and the throw away world, about who "tells us" what we need. It is television we need to throw away. This is the biggest threat to world, imagine as 1 billion Chinese enter the free market economy and the advertisers and the stylists get a hold of them. The killowatt hours required to drive the sets alone doesn't bear thinking about. Turn it off.


Feedback on Food Miles

Couldn't we just convince supermarkets to list whether the product has been air freighted, sea freighted or neither on their packaging?

Feedback on Fabric Conditioners

From Niki, Peterborough, Sunday, January 18, 2004

I'd just like to say that the plastics bottles in which fabric softeners are sold are made from HDPE, the same as milk bottles, and are accepted in pretty much every single plastic bottle recycling programme operating in the UK (which covers more than 60% of all local authority areas). Therefore the containers are simple to recycle, negating that section of the author's argument - sorry! If you want to find out more about plastic bottle recycling, Recoup can help so do visit our website at www.recoup.org

I agree, entirely. It is a product I encountered for the first time when returning to live in the UK in 1980, after an absence of 9 years in Greece. What a waste of money! I don't need it, don't use it and prefer the smell of fresh-from-out-of doors, to any chemical-clean-washing-smell!! Clever marketing, and keep-up-with-the-neighbour pressure, that's all... Interesting the bit about the artificial musk entering our bodies - rather worrying really, since nearly everybody has been brain-washed into using it!

Feedback on Water Coolers

 

From Andrew Cooper, Huddersfield, Thursday, June 14, 2001

(The global warming and bin filling machine in every office - not mine.)

A fridge purely dedicated to cooling water that is tested less than tap water which is then invariably poured into a never ending supply of provided plastic cups. Its a waste of energy and a waste of resources. Why not just put some tap water in the fridge. They should be banned well the plastic cups should be for a start.
