Nanny's special little organ, Envirowise (funded by the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs) has got a bee in its bonnet about water being wasted.
A good point!
Gazillions of gallons of water are wasted each year in this country, because our water companies (eg Thames Water) are not upgrading leaking Victorian water mains with sufficient speed.
Therefore one would assume that Envirowise is calling upon the water companies to upgrade the system with due haste.
Envirowise is calling on businesses to appoint tea monitors to make sure people do not waste water.
It wants companies to use teapots instead of making individual cups of tea, and hopes to re-introduce tea urns to the workplace.
It has issued an edict:
"Appoint a tea task force or tea monitor to make sure all your office hot drink-making facilities are as efficient as they could be. Only boil the water you use - this will avoid water and energy being wasted."
They add that employees should use a teapot when making a round of hot drinks as this "allows you to measure the correct amount of water you will need, and often tastes nicer than making tea in the cup".
I humbly submit that a greater saving of resources could be made if Envirowise were to be abolished.
