Bottled Water: Some people just don't get it

Green (Living) Review

Is there any integrity still out there in the media of whatever kind or is just everything advertiser orientated and anything that might upset an advertisers or sponsor, or even a future advertiser or sponsor, must not be written about. That is censorship and an editorial policy against which I, for one, have always stood and this was one of the reasons why Tatchipen Media was founded in the first place.

Let's Talk Rubbish

Green (Living) Review

A new book on reusing and upcycling trash Epsom, Surrey, UK, August 2010 : In “ Let's Talk Rubbish ”, published in August 2010 by Tatchipen Media, the Romani Publishing & Media Company, the author, Michael Smith (Veshengro), is not talking rubbish but about rubbish, about trash, or whatever else you may call it, and about how we can reduce it in our homes and at our places of work. This 82-page book in A4 format is full of food for thought and ideas and projects of reusing and reworking and upcycling all manner of waste materials into something useful, and that in most cases almost instantly. In a number of separate chapters from tin cans over glass jars to miscellaneous items the author is trying to communicate to the reader ideas of how he can make an impact by making things he may want or need from waste materials rather than going out and buying them. The prime example would be the pencil bin. Many people rush out to buy a metal pencil bin – oh, it is made from recycled steel and ONLY costs $8 – while at the same time they have just thrown a perfectly good one into the trash or, if we are lucky, the recycling bin in the for of a clean tin can. That is a better recycled one than one made from recycled metal costing loads of money. Other items upcycled are glass jars into lamps, electric and oil, drinking vessels, and rehydration vessels. Then there are ideas as to what to do with all the one-side only printed pages in the office, all the card stock from cereal packs, and much, much more. But, as the authors says, “ Let's Talk Rubbish ” is very much a “work-in-progress” in that it, more than likely, would never be finished, as more and more ideas come along all the time. The book “Let's Talk Rubbish” is currently available only as an E-book and only available for purchase via “Let's Talk Rubbish” website [link] using PayPal. E-book will be dispatched via email immediately upon receipt of funds and notification from PayPal. The author of “Let's Talk Rubbish” is Romani-Gypsy of origin and has written extensively on such diverse issues as green living, general and green politics, homesteading, recycling, Romani affairs and politics. He lives in Epsom, Surrey, England. © 2010. Tags: recycing crafts recycling upcycling DIY with trash.

Green Website Partners

Green (Living) Review

By Michael Smith (Veshengro) It is amazing to see the kind of partners and sponsors that some supposedly green websites and social media sites list. There are times when I am beginning to wonder as to whether the GREEN (LIVING) REVIEW – and Tatchipen Media – are the only ones, or one of very few, that have real ethics and that question everyone's credentials.

New advertising rules apply.

Green (Living) Review

Maybe, therefore, advertisers and their agents could take note that it will now be illegal to do such things and, as far as I am concerned, there needs to be some real and honest openness and clarity put forward on Blogs and other media websites as to whether or not payment was received for an article. Is your website, decent, legal and honest?

Reuse – the most important “R” of Waste Management

Green (Living) Review

They do exist, of that I am sure, and of one of them I am 100% certain, for it is one that I have written myself and published through Tatchipen Media as an E-book. by Michael Smith (Veshengro) Reuse , including repair and upcycling, must come directly after “reduce” in the “Rs” of waste management and well before any thought of recycle. Recycle must be the very last resort. But we are being told, on an almost daily basis, the the powers that be to recycle more.

Green (Living) Review

Personally, I have made cards, printed them from a template created, for the GREEN (LIVING) REVIEW, and other parts of TATCHIPEN MEDIA on press releases that were sent to me on strong paper, laminated them and then cut them up. by Michael Smith (Veshengro) Do you really needs those fancy printed business cards? And all that other fancy printed stationery? Impressions, I know, count and in business first impressions are all important but. and here comes the “but”.
