Ask for Tap (Water not Beer): Act Green in August (via Green Thing)

Last week I looked at my overflowing recycling bin and thought to myself what's wrong with this picture?
The answer was too much plastic of which a good amount was bottled water.

How much money do I spent weekly/ monthly on the stuff. I could not tell?

That's why when I visited Green Thing, a British site sharing ways to be 'practically green' with a healthy dose of humor and saw their Do August’s Green Thing. Ask for Tap I had to share it.

Their toolbox includes music, videos and good prose.

Here are 5 ways Green Thing suggests to resist the call of the 'bottled water' salesman:

  1. Your evil mineral water is clear but my conscience is clearer.
  2. Tut the pap tit who raps tip top tap.
  3. I’m a taposexual. I get a sexual thrill from turning taps on and off.
  4. Watch what you say you mineral mo-fo – I’m Spanish and a bad tap ass.
  5. Your water’s fabulous. Get it to me through a long copper pipe that finishes in a clever on-off valve, charge me 1000 times less for it and I’ll take some.

Who said being earth friendly had to be a chore?

Fun for Green Day #38

One person steers it, the others 6 can pedal if they wish. What was originally an art project by...

Strawberry Colored Rosé: Masia D Bielsa, a Picnic Wine from Spain

Aug 5
I did not wear tinted glasses to taste this wine. I was not sure at first if I should buy it. Well after all I thought if it is not that drinkable, I can use it as cooking wine. What strikes you first when you pour it, is its deeper rosé color, let's call it strawberry like. This Masia D Bielsa Rosé (2007) is 100% Garnacha (Grenache), Old Vines at that. The grapes are harvested...
