Had a mad thought- if the government was to give every person in the uk a tree to plant - thats 65million trees. Figure about 10 quid a tree, plus 40% setup and logistical costs. So that’s 1bn - You could plant 65 million trees, which would offset some of the uks carbon footprint which would actually help the environment. So for 1bn your doing something which is pretty tangible , quickly
Here’s the background. Our company does these well-being things (lots of fresh fruit, water , office yoga etc) and as part of this , they print out an “inspirational quote of the day” poster for everyone to look at. You know the sort of thing, “life is a dance and mindfulness is a state of mind” etc
Anyway, I decided this morning to replace said poster with this
the last episode is on tonight (already on iplayer) i wont spoil it, but parts of it are genius, but a bit let down by the ending if im honest (although looking at social media i think im in a minority)
an incredibly clever piece of acting/comedy/writing/drama. one of the best series in a long time .
