This song plants trees

To actually get a tree planted, you need to keep playing the song. You need a spotify or amazon
music account, then search for the song name – “this song plants trees”, and each time it’s played,
they plant trees from the royalties! So go on – add it to all your playlists, and off set your musical
footprint with each play!

Waste Away!

Bristol has found a new way to tackle electronic waste, or e-waste – to repair & restore unwanted electronics. From today and for the next 10 days the city’s Electric Avenue pop-up store will hand out electrical items donated by the good people of Bristol.

Lamps, keyboards and slow cookers are among the items being given away, as part of an initiative to tackle e-waste and consumerism. All items have all been cleaned, repaired, safety checked and ultimately diverted from landfill sites and recycling centres.

The pop-up is a pilot project run by the environmental charity Hubbub and the Bristol Waste Company. They have been going around the city in an old milk float collecting unwanted items. The aim is to show people that secondhand electronics still have value, while highlighting the ecological impact of e-waste – one of the world’s fastest growing and most toxic waste streams.

Who Dunnit?!!

Who bit the flan? Only suspect!

Today’s Joke

There was an old man who lived by a forest. As he grew older and older, he started losing his hair, until one day, on his deathbed, he was completely bald. That day, he called his children to a meeting.

He said, “Look at my hair. It used to be so magnificent, but it’s completely gone now. My hair can’t be saved. But look outside at the forest. It’s such a lovely forest with so many trees, but sooner or later they’ll all be cut down and this forest will look as bald as my hair.”

“What I want you to do…” the man continued. “Is, every time a tree is cut down or dies, plant a new one in my memory. Tell your descendants to do the same. It shall be our family’s duty to keep this forest strong.”

And so they did.

Each time the forest lost a tree, the children replanted one, and so did their children, and their children after them.

And for centuries, the forest remained as lush and pretty as it once was, all because of one man and his re-seeding heirline.
