I hope I don't reopen a can of worms... for the last 2 years I've had "ethical" holidays - I use quotes because I'm not sure how ethical they actually were - however, my intentions were good.

Has anyone said "toilet cleaner" yet? Because I only flush once or twice a day, and with rainwater, and the area is hardwater, there was a nasty dark mark in the bowl and around the "tide mark". However hard I scrubbed it the stain wouldn't budge. Yesterday I poured half a litre of white vinegar int...

another aspect of Fair Trade beyond fair pay is the one of health and safety at work - we tend to take it for granted that we won't be exposed at work in the UK to bare electrical flexes, unsafe practises (such as pouring molten metal into molds which are between bare feet), poor lighting, long hour...

I'm so glad that I spotted the fuzz in the oil before wrapping the bottles up - they are pretend cut glass so I had to peer in.

Thanks for all your comments.....

Waitrose grows on me more & more.

Flavoured olive oil
