frugal bit, a bamboo and recycled plastic washing up brush, 4 and a half stars, £3, prime(ie a prebooked service for a yearly fee) delivered tomorrow, less fuss and energy than 2 rides to a shop with overpriced and disappointing brushes

if i dont think about how it was made, it seems ethical

purchase two is going in does it matter

We find it increasingly difficult to buy things like stationery, hardware etc. in actual shops and have to resort to mail order. We have no idea where it comes from; in some cases there is no option but to buy from China, or some other place where we would prefer not to buy.

I try to avoid Amazon but some things are only available there (e.g. specific books). Many other items available locally are the same junk but marked up.
