RANT: Fetid freebie

Today a free daily newspaper in London were handing out free samples of a 48 hour proven protection anti-perspirant deodorant. Not gonna mention or link to either of them to be honest.

Really ticks me off when people give out crappy freebies especially when the freebie is essentially made of stuff that harms the planet. As if newspapers themselves are good for the planet.

Wish that newspapers and so on would turn away freebies that are wasteful i.e. samples. Why not hand out vouchers for the product instead. Less wastage. Plus people will redeem the voucher for the normal size supply and so will use it longer. Better all round. For people, planet and profit.
