Welsh Government says a charge is the only way to reduce plastic bag use further and encourage reuse

The Welsh Assembly Government has said it wants to bring in a compulsory charge on all plastic bags given out to shoppers.

A fee in Ireland has helped reduce the single-use bag by 90% and Wales’ Environment Minister, Jane Davidson, thinks this could be a good example for Wales to follow. More details can be found on the Guardian’s website.

Get prepared! We produce cotton bags that are ideal for taking to the shops, and will be used time and time again. Perfect for the long term promotion of your brand.

(250gsm silk artboard, full colour, matt laminated both sides & spot UV varnish one side.)

A type of speed bump has been designed to let vehicles that are traveling within the speed limit pass over them unimpeded. Sounds clever doesn’t it? I’ll tell you what else sounds clever… non-Newtonian Thixotropic fluid.  Ever heard of it? No, neither had I, until I read James Dyson talking about them in Design Week.

Internal cells within the speed bump will contain this thin liquid which will instantly react with the speed at which a driver makes contact with the speed-bump. Designed by an Australian student from Newcastle University, Bryce Killen, the Bumpfree Dynamic Speed Bump has made the shortlist for the 2010 Australian Design Awards.

I’ve no idea how much this would cost to implement but it sounds expensive. Maybe an alternative would be to combine the existing technology from speed warning signs to retractable bumps.

Final Week!

Perception

April 6, 2010

I drink a lot of Tea and happen to think I’m quite good at making it. However, we have a mug at home and for some reason Tea made in this mug never tastes as good.

I wondered if this could have something to do with the word ‘Chocolate’ being written the outside. You’re subconsciously expecting to taste chocolate, and are therefore slightly disappointed when it’s not as sweet.

This theory was backed up during Ep. 7 of ‘Body Language Secrets‘ on Sky 1. The programme claims that there is a part of the brain that influences how enjoyable you find a product based how much pleasure you BELIEVE you’re going to get from it. In an experiment they asked volunteers to taste some wine. Before drinking, one glass was talked up as being one of the World’s best. The other glass was unashamedly announced as a cheap plonk.

You’re probably not surprised to learn that the volunteers thought the ‘best’ wine was incredible, and the ‘cheap’ wine… not up to much. However, they were duped. The show producers had put exactly the same wine in both glasses.

So it makes the point that when you hear wonderful things about a wine, when it’s presented properly, it actually changes the way you experience it.

The same rules apply to your product or company. Whenever your customer comes into contact with your company, through people, products or marketing (ads/website/brochures/business cards), they form a perception.

In the opinion of your customer, your company is only what THEY perceive it to be.

We like to keep things simple. That’s why in April, we’ve reduced our most popular items to the same low price – just £99.
