"Support a cause that stands for something you believe in"
Hmm.......... well apparently the UK government has just agreed to ban all plastic straws, stirrers and cotton buds. Microbeads are already banned. This is some good news amongst all the bad stuff. I believe in cutting out unnecessary plastics.
Tomorrow we have to VOTE for our MEP (Member of the European Parliament) at the same time as the process for leaving the EU continues..................... to drag on unresolved!
I'll be voting. Guess this isn't the right place to show my colours - those of you who know me a bit will probably guess right anyway! I believe in democracy.
I've been buying my veg, as much as possible, from the local organic supplier - it's more expensive, and not always grown in the UK, but I want to support them as they are surrounded by the supermarkets and high-street chains - it's not easy. I've also bought a ready-made salad box for lunch from them - it's a wonderfully tasty and nutritious mix, served in a plant-based container. If I need a fork, there's a wooden one available - but I take my own from home when I can. I believe in organic food.
Today I put some money in the busker's hat too - we have some really great buskers here - they deserve to be paid for the music they provide. I believe in music.
Today I gave my time to interact with some of my immediate neighbours. I believe in community.
