wa wa woo wee!

I was just having my morning break from exhibition planning and I quietly googled and blog searched with sips of tea and chocolate wafers.

oh, my gosh...i am so excited...Sofia Coppola is one of my favourite directors along side Wes Anderson(he is on my mind 'cos I just saw Fantastic Mr Fox!).

Somewhere's release date is december in the US. We will be in France around then...
I can't wait!

NO PLASTIC DAY, June 8th*** help spread the word!

No Plastic Day is June 8th... Thanks to Liane who let me know about this!

No Plastic Day is a world wide event intended to bring awareness of the over consumption of disposable plastic goods such as plastic bags and bottles. It is well known that there are floating islands of trash in most of the world's oceans. The huge amounts of plastic trash we all discard daily doesn't decompose, doesn't break down, and most of it is toxic to the animals that accidentally consume it. The current rate of plastic consumption is not sustainable and is starting to create a huge problem for marine life particularly. Fish eat toxic plastic bits. We catch the fish and eat the fish. Its only a matter of time before we've polluted our own food supplies with plastic trash.

What you can do on No Plastic Day - June 8, 2010

  • No plastic bags - If you buy something from a store on No Plastic Day, bring your own bags. If you don't have any cloth or paper bags, just reuse the plastic bags you already have. They'll never biodegrade so you might as well reuse them if you already have them.
  • No plastic bottles - Drink water from the tap or buy drinks in aluminum cans or glass bottles if you must.
  • Limit your garbage - Almost everything you throw away is made of plastic. By limiting the garbage you create, you will reduce your plastic waste as well.
  • Be creative - Everyone's situation is different and you will need to customize your own situation for No Plastic Day. Be creative. Reuse, recycle, and reduce your waste. Consider it a personal experiment to find ways you can create less garbage and try to use no disposable plastics.
(excerpt taken from No Plastic Day page) celebrate this lovely event we want to have a little eco-giveaway open to everyone who gets involved. The prize pack includes an original "no plastic day" texta drawing(seen at the top of this page), DP products, eco reading and maybe some more?! photos of this will be posted tomorrow.

Spread the good news, add your name to a comment or email us at:

...and we will get our computer to randomly choose the winner... woohoo!

Happy no-plastic-ing!

p.s. I know this is late notice, so we will keep this comp open for 1 week from June 8th
