Band of botherers

I was away and hence missed the piece (more nanny nonsense), but here are the replies:

Rubber band harvest

For the rest, there is always..., and RE:tie.


Had to write to the BBC..

Regarding today's recycled 'news' item with, we are sure, a well-paid professional busy-body given airtime on a minor non-issue (rubber bands) at the expense of a bigger one (litter).

Regarding the bands, may we suggest folk just pick 'em up and reuse them.

As to sending them in piecemeal by post, while this may make for a nice story (and help a beleaguered Royal Mail's profits), it might not be the best use of planetary resources, so we'd be hard-pressed to see an eco-value at all.
