Stop Overpackaging

The time has come to put a stop to this completely unnecessary waste of resources. Manufacturers and retailer’s main incentive for over packaging their goods is branding and marketing. Most modern consumers have grown used to this overpackaging and in the case of supermarket fruit and veg actually prefer to buy the more heavily packaged items as they are perceived to be “cleaner” than the unpackaged ones. The purpose of this campaign is to raise awareness of this unnecessary waste and put pressure on manufacturers and retailers to use more environmentally friendly and cut the amount of waste we produce.

    I put this message in as I have been using the Local Cooling app for a while and it has come in handy as I have had a bad habit in the past of leaving my machine idling and going out. Now I let Local Cooling take over and now my machine does it’s bit for the enviroment too. You can override it by adding a programme to its set up e.g. Windows Media Player etc. so that it doesn’t take over your machine while you are listening or watching something on your PC. I personally thing the programme is brilliant. And would like to thank those at Local Cooling for the splendid job they are doing. ** Don’t take my word for it give it a go yourself! ** http://www.localcooling.com/
