I also popped in to see the Stitched Up gang to drop off three bulging bags of clothes and rifle through their wares. I went back just before leaving the festival to see if anything of mine had disappeared yet; turns out a lady had just taken an old Cos dress of mine that just never fit me right, and was overjoyed. Result!
Onto something not so green: Inditex, the company responsible for Zara, Pull & Bear, et al, pledged to join in with Earth Hour 2012.
This meant switching off all lights from 8.30pm to 9.30pm on Saturday 31st March, so Zara were to turn their window lights off for one hour last night. This picture was taken at 20:45 yesterday..
I'm not sure of the efficacy of Earth Hour; the amount of energy used to switch said light bulbs back on at at 9.30 probably outweighs any benefit gained during that one hour. Still, it is a poor show considering their pledge. Better luck next year Zara - perhaps you could shut up for the day and pop along to Chorlton's Big Green Festival?
