The Summer holidays have been wonderful despite humid rainy days. We are bestowed with sparkling green landscapes and a reprive from bush fires.
The school term resumes next/this Tuesday or Wednesday.
'Back to School' is the shopping theme and these exercise books (pictured) are selling for 1 cent, 5 cents and 8 cents each, made in Asian countries.
It is possible these prices don't reflect the true cost to the environment. Was it plantation or rainforest timber used to produce the paper?
(It was accidental that a person was standing right behind the sign)

It probably costs more to ring them through the till!
