Last week our U.K. tour took us through Bury St Edmunds which pleased me more than I can say. Why the boundless enthusiasm? For sure its a nice enough town. And it has a Poundland, rapidly becoming a favourite of mine. But it was not this that excited me so.
No, I had been invited for tea and buns with the first lady of waste, the founder of the rubbish diet, her trashness herself Karen Cannard. A highly pleasant afternoon was spent discussing recycling rates, rubbish reduction, Portuguese tarts (the pastries!) and plans for the future.
- being a Zero Waste Ambassador for Zero Waste Week, now in its seventh year and running from the 1st – 7th September 2014.
- girding my loins for plastic free July.
Karen news is also very exciting but sadly not mine to tell. For now you will have to be satisfied with a photo of her in the back seat of our van – enough excitement for any one!
Thanks for a great afternoon.
