Two weeks ago my pear tree was a vision of gold against blue. Today it is a skeleton of dead sticks in the rain.
I have been intrigued recently to see that a number of blogs have weekly themes - Harvest Monday, Food Waste Friday, and Sarah's great weekly waste round up on Zero Waste Wednesday (I am mining this for ideas, of course!).
In my present state of, 'Blah, it's raining and cold and the beginning of winter, and I'm just not feeling on top of the world AT ALL today..,' I'm thinking of starting a Can't Be Bothered Thursday theme, where all planet-saving and self-improvement schemes will be suspended for the day, and we will be lolling on the couch, eating (fair trade) chocolate, drinking (local) red wine and discussing the relative merits of our favourite TV shows. Will it catch on?
Meanwhile, a way to reduce plastic waste that involves zero degrees of difficulty - I picked up the paper-wrapped recycled toilet paper instead of the (ever so slightly cheaper) plastic wrapped packet that I usually buy. That is the extent of the effort I am capable of today.
