Re-defining Rubbish

At DIY Homefit we do like the slogan on The Co-operative Food range of reusable shopping bags – “Carrier bags are rubbish”. The bags are available in a number of sizes and designs but all in a striking turquoise colour and bearing the slogan. Since the introduction of the compulsory charge for plastic carrier bags in October, all large stores are now offering customers a range of alternative longer-lasting bags to purchase.

Another Christmas Another Show!

You know when you can’t get a song out of your head?!  Well that old Cole Porter song “Another Opening Another Show” is in ours at the moment. The lyrics are all about preparing for opening night and in a way they remind us of preparing for Christmas. Every year, despite our best intentions to keep things simple, most of us get swept up in the Christmas frenzy!
