Fugitive Plastic.


 No not another name for a fabulous Prog Rock band.  It's the term for plastic litter which very often ends up in our seas and landfill sites.

We paid a visit to Dealz in Killarney last weekend.  It's the Irish sister company of Poundland.  I often buy Jimi Hendrix design t shirts and tracksuits bottoms there amongst a myriad of other household and garden items.

We had left all our carrier bags in the car and we decided to buy one of their recycled plastic bottles carrier bags.  It was about one Euros fifty and it's very strong and should last a long while before it needs to be recycled again.

Plastic will probably be always with us even if there is more food starch based biodegradable plastic.  I think the carrier bags are a brilliant way of combating or even recycling fugitive plastic!

What do you think?

  3. P definitely possesses Wombling skills. I am looking for free mushroom compost or a council that sells or gives away green waste.

  4. I think the same as you. However, I would not have gone for a floral design as that is too girlish. Weren't there any masculine designs with weapons of war, pit bull terriers baring their teeth or electric guitars?

  5. I didn't choose the carrier bag YP. You have some great ideas though. I would have pictures of polytunnels, Ronaldo, cans of baked beans, Newcastle Brown Ale and Thin Lizzy. We've lost our way. 😊

    1. We can't even fart now without them tutting. There was a time when men could fart freely - trumpeting like wild elephants in a jungle. Now we are supposed to make our farts whisper as if ashamed of themselves.

Continuing with an A to Z of some of my favourite Rock bands. Today I would list Ronnie James Dio for my letter D choice. He sadly is no lo...
