Lego can't win really can they - fantastic product: same design for decades, lasts forever, and children from 3 to 93 play with it. But, it lasts forever. We'd all complain if it disintegrated after five years. I bet they're thinking about it though -- maybe they just take old Lego back and re-use it.

And there you go :)

Lego started as a company making wooden toys. Perhaps a sustainable forest producing sustainable wooden Lego????

I have grown three sweet chestnut trees from some I got just before Xmas to roast on the fire. I'm now on the lookout for suitable planting spots.
Our local council are a bit handy with the strimmers and seem to wear a blindfold while strimming. Everything goes!
Waiting for tree planting time in the autumn and I'll plant them. Have two possible spots so far.
 
Mostly a muse - but maybe this could ( should ) become a running thread?

I saw this long running thread :- https://bushcraftuk.com/community/threads/what-did-you-buy-today.70299/

And I just thought , well, that's very commercial isn't it? I mean , its in essence about being a Consumer.

Now I'm not on a massive rant about people buying stuff ( been more than guilty of that myself ) but as I get older I now ask myself ( and this may sound kooky ) about what sort of relationship I want with the item I'm buying??? Does it have too much packaging ? if I buy it I am now RESPONSIBLE for the actual recycling and disposal of that - etc.

So as we are all Bushcrafter's I'd like to pose a new question - WHAT HAVE YOU DONE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT TODAY??

Could be as simple as picking up litter or rubbish on a local walk , but hopefully is could be something more interesting as planting trees , organising a community rubbish collection , cutting back invasive non-native species etc.
Picked up rubbish left on a path meters away from a bin.
Burned my unrecyclable card........made a pile of branches for the insects to invade...
