Two favourite topics

These days I seem to mostly be thinking about (in no particular order) plastic bags and surfing. If you aren't quite weary of bag chat, then have a look at the Guardian's article on the plastic bag debate by Leo Hickman, who writes:

"James Lovelock, the climate scientist, has referred to the current obsession with plastic bags as 'rearranging the deckchairs on the Titanic'. Patting ourselves on the back about how few plastic bags we each now use allows us to ignore far more pressing environmental issues such as, say, climate change, overpopulation, rapid species extinction and the depletion of resources such as fresh water. Today's war on plastic bags is certainly worth fighting, but not if it is at the expense of these other concerns."

And if you aren't too tired of my constant chatter of upcycling in the surf world, then feast your eyes on Adam Scott's Seat With a View (above), a chair fashioned from a former surfboard.
