F is for Fringe Flyers (Abc Wednesday)

During the Edinburgh Fringe there were 1000s of flyers being handed out all over town.. some were also put on this fence.. and a whole lot ended up at the ground.. I can't help wondering if anyone is giving the environmental aspect a thought at all.. after all it is quite a waste of paper and trees..

You certainly have a good point about the mess and possible waste of paper. I hope it was a great festival and you had a lot of fun! :D

True. Most people won't really read it anyway. I just hope the papers are of recyclable materials so it can be used in making other things.

I played, too! My "F" photo is up <a href="http://shutterhappenings.blogspot.com/2008/08/f-fountain.html">here</a>.

The Fringe at the festival seems to unearth such great talent too. But I agree with the awful mess being made on the ground with all the flyers ,and, as you point out, the waste of paper printing off flyers that are never read.

Think about the jobs in the paper industry! ...No, most of the stuff that´s printed on paper is simply waste as soon as it comes out of the printer. Whose going to catch anything meaningful from that messy pile?

Yes a very good point. Environmental issues are very much of the trend at the moment, so if the Edinburgh Festival is the place to be, the environment should be the cause to support.

Thanks for your contribution.

That's very true about the environmental aspect of it. I would love to get to the Festival one day.

Quite an interesting flyer foto. I must look up the "Fringe." I don't know what it is--a Festival I imagine.
