We were walking our ill-allsorted collection of mutts down by the lake, at the Lindsey Prior arboretum this morning, and watching all the fitties doing their rowing. It made for a lovely walk, and a very pleasant morning. We stopped off at the new benches which have been installed there. Very nicely done, and they fit in well with the general ambience of the place.
(I do hope however it stops at this, it woudl be a real shame to lose the “semi-wild” parkland aspect down there.)
I had to laugh as each bench as a little plaque on it which reads;
These benches are made from 100% recycled plastic which also contains plastic waste collected from the ANU.
Well!! Well done ANU for donating your plastic waste, some of which may be in these benches. It’s nice to know there is such munificent and benevolent waste plastic donation going on at our local University.
