Saving the planet… and a few pence

In a break from some gardening, whilst searching to find what the candidates in the local election might have in their manifestos (because, with one exception, none of them have communicated with me), I came across a sitting councillor’s plans for saving the planet. Now I appreciate that, to borrow a phrase, ‘every little helps’ and that without the flashy headline nobody might have noticed it at all, but replacing paper copies of the local council newspaper with email, but only if everyone in a street agrees to do the same, is probably only going to save a few twigs, not the planet.

Anyway, the distributors are already being quite effective in saving the planet… I haven’t received a copy of Swindon News since August. I hope the council has spent wisely the 24 p it saved by not sending me the last three editions.
