As someone who loves to get outside as much as I can, litter is something that bothers me greatly. Whether I’m in town (read about my visit to Bridgnorth), by the sea or in the countryside, litter – especially plastic waste – is a massive issue. In an attempt to rally the troops and spread the load a little, Jenni

Ditch the Plastic with SIGG

I have been challenged by SIGG to ditch the plastic this February – more specifically, to stop buying single use plastic bottles for one month. The fact is that in the UK we just don’t need to buy bottled water. We have clean running water in our homes, in our offices, in our schools, in

My Moment to Shine

To say this last week has been a roller coaster would be a massive understatement. On Wednesday I became one of 8,000 people to carry the London 2012 Olympic Torch on its 70 day journey. And what an experience that was. And it was nuts. Totally bonkers. Wow. What an experience. At the briefing we

The London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay begins in just four weeks time on Saturday 19th May. And it’s 68 days until I get my hands on the gold perforated torch to play my part as a Coca Cola Future Flame. One of 8,000 people do be taking part. Coke are encouraging us all to Move

Our house is pretty much a caffiene free zone.  It’s not because we eat chocolate and drink one cup of caffienated tea a day, but it is because everything else is decaffienated – including tea, coffee and coke.  It’s a shame we can’t get the caffiene free Dr Pepper in the UK, and some caffiene

It’s hot hot hot at the moment – yay for the summer! But it means I require refreshing drinks at work. So today I went for an old favourite… coke with lime! 29/06/10: You put the lime in the coke, you nut… Oh, and here’s the advert if you haven’t already got the song in
