From China With Love.

I went into the bike shop this afternoon to buy a couple of tyres and some brake parts for my wife's vintage roadster.

That sounds a bit hipster I suppose, but we bought it more than forty years ago, which must make it genuine vintage!

The trouble is, for the price of the parts, we could buy one of these colourful beasts that have a little less rust showing, but will have been landfill for thirty-nine years in forty years time!

It has to stop, the "everything is disposable" mentality.

We need a wider-spread mentality that embraces reduce, reuse, recycle.
