Daily Mail fashion advice

According to a 'Did You Know?' sidebar in a Daily Mail feature on recycling yesterday,

It take just 25 two-litre pop bottles to make one adult-size fleece jacket

Yes, possibly – but even if you could find something to glue the bottles together with, you'd end up looking like the Michelin Man. And it would hardly be comfortable...

(Seriously, a company called Greenpac does make clothing from plastic yarn taken from melted-down drinks bottles, but there was no explanation of this in the Daily Mail story – hence the strange mental image. With language, context is everything.)

I think this is a great idea and from now on we should make all our clothes out of our recycling bag at home... Today JD is sporting a lovely shirt made entirley of San Miguel lids

A friend of mine, once told me about a company that makes sandals out of old jeans! Sadly I deleted the link so I'm unable to share this with you!!

Wow, and when the sandals wear out you could turn them back into jeans! You've just solved the world's jeans-and-sandals shortage in one stroke...
