Guess a trip to the recycling dump is coming up next week.
Good choice of subject with plenty of room for creative pictures.
Kind regards

Plastic???? You got to be kidding. How are we Canadians going to find plastic?

Did you take into account this side of the globe, where we live in Igloo, have 60 below weather.

Do any of you know what happens to plastic after 40 below?

It turn brittel and crack and becomes no more!

Here is a picture I took two day ago of my spring, where we carry our water from.




Now what am I going to do?!

Not a chance, the plastic has been shipped around the world at least twice! To my astonishment I bought some mineral water in M&S in plastic bottles, it came from Canada.

I believe the components for the Toyota Prius batteries are mined in Canada and that added to all the other globally sourced stuff that's in it make it decidedly un-green.

Living in the 'Second City of the Empire' where we used to make big things like railway locomotives and ships, I notice that the only things on Glasgow docks are piles of plastic garbage, which is shipped to China to make fleece jackets that probably end up back here via Canada.

Sorry, mad rant over...

for now
