Replacing The Plastic Toothbrush At Last

Another post from 2018. Another simple thing we can all do to dump the plastic in our lives.

Finally got round to replacing the plastic toothbrush. We were in Shrewsbury at the weekend & bought them from Jan at Snap Dragon in the market. It’s a great place to shop and a lovely town. Shame they are “designed” in Australia & “created” in China. Can’t we just “make” them locally? It’s just a toothbrush! It’s not an essential part of the International Space Station so why is it “created”?

Reducing Plastic Consumption – Mouthwash Tablets

I posted this in 2018 but how many have have switched to buying these or something similar rather than plastic bottles full of countless litres of water carried in commercial vehicles burning fossil fuels. One problem is possibly the monetary cost which I need to work out if one is cheaper than the other. The environmental cost is a no brainer as these are far less damaging.

In searching how to reduce our consumption of plastic my partner came across these mouthwash tablets from georganics. The bottle is glass and the lid is metal. It would be great if they could sell refills in a plain cardboard box but hopefully that will eventually come.

Whale Sanctuary – A Lost Opportunity

A proposal to create a whale sanctuary in the South Atlantic at a meeting in Brazil has been defeated. Unfortunately, words like developing and growth are always spouted as many governments, cultures, religions and financial systems have not come to terms with the fact that we are beyond the capacity of the Earth to support this many semi intelligent apes.

Earth R.I.P. – murdered by humanity’s stupidity.

Review – I have received a wonderful review of my story Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow

I have been very lucky in that the Devon Beekeepers Association has reviewed my story and written some really nice words about it.

Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow by Paul Noel

“A bee story for children” – that was the description sent with Paul Noel’s book, “Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow”, and on the face of it that’s exactly what it is. A tale with an intrepid honey bee called Beatriz at its core, ready and willing to use her intelligence and super-fast flight in the battle against the enemy – those who would seek to destroy the natural habitat of the field she calls home, together with her fellow creatures that also live there.

Yet it’s more than ‘a bee story for children’, for while they will love the heroic antics of Beatriz, or ‘Bea’ to everyone who knows her, adults will find characters familiar to them too – officious bureaucrats, eager nature-loving campaigners, boffins, dastardly developers and potentially wicked planners! The turning point when all the humans and animals come together is a joyous highlight!

No doubt we’ve all heard of a field that is ripe for necessary development and Paul Noel’s fantasy is one that we can easily follow and understand. While the drama and the suspense gives joy to younger listeners and readers, it represents important issues raised by the need for more homes and the conflict between those building houses and those passionate about protecting the natural environment.

As ever with children’s books you get most out of the story by suspending your disbelief and remembering that it’s simply a story to entertain and not provide a full education of the lifecycle of the honeybee and its behaviour in the hive and in the field – there are plenty of less exciting books, which are designed to give real insight to those of us who are interested in bee facts. “Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow” doesn’t ignore general bee behaviour, but it’s full of fun and allows the imagination to take over, helped along with drawings that reflect the overall upbeat feel. The pictures are ideal for children to colour in, making it even more entertaining and better value.

Any beekeeper, indeed any adult, will not be bored if they find themselves reading the story of Bea trying to save her meadow. Just one question remains, what might Bea do next for surely “Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow” is the first of a series?

How We Have Consumed The World

This latest study shows just how much damage we have done to this planet and how we need to change both our numbers and our lifestyles. We need a global one child policy now.

Can We Really Have Screwed Up This Bad? – Yes We Have

How much more evidence do we need before we admit that the industrial revolution has been a complete disaster for the environment and that our economic monopoly model of continuous expansion and consumption at the expense of exploited humans is deleterious to the life support systems and eventually to us.

Wet Wipes – What Did You Do Before? – Time To Stop Using Them

Wet wipes, another part of some people’s convenient lives and now part of the micro plastic particle problem and turning up in something that you are eating right now. So don’t buy them and don’t use them unless you like eating plastic of course.
