Don’t you get sick of commercial BULL? We were told that WOLFRAM ALPHA was going to be the be-all-and-end-all. I just tried a couple of simple queries… “who is Peter Scargill” – and “what happened in 1954” – both produced nothing but garbage – but in each case Google was spot on as usual. Everything I’ve ever tried on WA has failed miserably.
Anyway, I digress…. I’m sitting here in front of a calendar entitled “101 THINGS EVERY WOMAN SHOULD DO BEFORE SHE DIES” … something Maureen must’ve picked up.. anyway, the BIG sign on the back tells you all about their GREEN credentials. It’s a company called Time Factory Publishing based in Indianapolis.
All of their calendars use forestry stewardship council certified paper…. they are powered by their own windmill, they recycle and suggest ways to re-use the calendar (I can think of a few).
All of which is GREAT until you look at the corner “printed in South Korea”…. and they’re selling them in the America!!
So assuming the best and they used electronic means to get the info to South Korea, the calendars are then travelling half way around the world to get to Britain. What’s wrong with “printed in the US” ??? Don’t we have any printers? GREEN CREDENTIALS? BULL more like it.
Of course in this case the goods were sold in America then shipped over here in the UK by a friend – but that’s another matter.
