It never fails to astound me how wasteful people are, whilst seemingly remaining completely oblivious of this fact.
No more are the majority of the public prepared to ‘make do and mend’, or even it seems, bother cleaning items when you can just buy new!
These 3 deep glass (soufflé?) dishes were spied abandoned by the side of a glass bottle bank one night when I was out with the Doctor and some friends. After discussion in the pub we all agreed it was worth a closer look- were they actually cracked, broken and knackered or just in need of a damn good clean? Well as you can see – there’s nothing wrong with them! They were caked in baked on oil, as you get when using glass or ceramic for roasting, but all they needed was a good going at with the scouring pad and hey presto – approx £25-30 worth of glassware for nuppence bar some elbow grease. What is wrong with these people??!
Just yesterday I spied this big ‘bag for life’ dumped half way round the local Aldi. 'Oh no (heavy sarcasm)
On another note can we afford to be so cavalier with our resources that it’s ok to throw such items away? And can we assume that there’s an infinite amount of space in landfill for them all? Worth a thought, surely?
Ezekiel was just as non-plussed as me - at me using 'his' garden for taking photographs in!
