Creating Programs For Young Rubbish Removal Ambassadors

Creating Programs For Young Rubbish Removal Ambassadors Sometimes the best people to deliver an important social message to adults are kids! There’s something quite convincing about a young innocent child asking adults in a sweet and respectful voice to please not throw their rubbish removal in the park! In fact, the same exact message out of the mouth of another adult would likely carry far less impact! This gives kids a great deal of power to help with rubbish removal issues like recycling, composting, littering, fly tipping, and...

Beldray 2 in 1 Cordless steam iron review

Beldray 2 in 1 Cordless steam iron Beldray as a brand is new to me, but since using this particular product I’ve realised I’d become one of those big brand people, only really considering a recognised brand when looking for new equipment to buy. It’s never really been a wholly conscious decision but we do tend to believe what we see in the media, and we do tend to perceive a recognised household name as a more durable and better quality product. I’ve used this Beldray 2 in 1 cordless iron a few times now having got through a few loads of...

But it does give you other benefits like sporadic free desserts and the like so it’s worthwhile. Just download the app, for free and show the waiter the code and it comes straight off your bill. It’s really...

Free books to download

Did you know that by using a clever app you can download library books and audio books for free? It’s been possible for some time using a service called Overdrive but in all honesty it’s not been hugely user friendly. I consider myself to be moderately tech savvy and I have to admit whenever I’ve used it I’ve scratched my head trying to remember how. I have always persevered though because the audio books in particular are great for long journeys, the last one we had on a 4 hour-that-turned-into-an-8-hour trip to...
