What a Load of Rubbish.

Giving Day was great fun and it was lovely to get such positive feedback, as well as another Giver. (Thanks, Farmer Liz). Hopefully all of the seeds and seedling found new homes.

I came across this video about six months ago and really like it. Although many of the figures are from the U.S., I love the message. The one fact that has really stuck with me is the one about the fact that every bit of plastic ever made is still somewhere in existence. Scary.

If you are interested in an Australian perspective have a look at Tim Silverwood. He is involved in a project called Take 3 that encourages people to take three pieces of rubbish when the leave the beach.

The Majestic Plastic Bag is another great little film that gets the message across is an incredibly imaginative way.

I hope you all had a great weekend.

Take care.


  1. I can actually remember when plastic started being used in the household. Until then waxed paper ruled. It is scary indeed.

  2. Me too, Mary. I remember when we used to get brown paper bags from the supermarket rather than those hideous plastic bags.

  3. Love that Vimeo!! (It's loud, but love the song too!)

  4. great little vimeo...thanks for sharing, and I will too!

  5. Dixiebelle, it certainly is a great little song. Such gorgeous animation too.

    Dmarie, I love to share interesting videos. I usually come across them from others sharing them.
