The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
I was amazed a few weeks ago to come across this at the train station fast supermarket.
Bottled water with lavender and mint in it to buy.
Last year I posted about a colleague’s water top tip.
Curiously they look pretty similar. But the difference is huge. The first bottle of course is single use plastic. The second is glass.
The price of the bottled water escaped me. So I’ve just looked it up €1.75 for 500ml. They also come with cucumber or lemon.
Amazing. Tap water is virtually free as it’s covered by the water rates. Meanwhile mint grows like a weed in the garden.
What a crazy example of convenience gone mad!
