Unbelievably I think that I may have been proved right about something. I have often questioned the sustainability of Ecobuild now that it is a corporate behemoth (most recently here). I felt sure that the levels of waste involved in this sort of exhibition was anathema to the sustainable agenda it purports to advocate.
Well, I was passing Excel this morning on the DLR and spotted skip trucks lined up on the external loading gallery. Ecobuild finished last week and the next event starts on Thursday. (Which, by the way, is the Big Bang Science Fair and well worth attending if you can.)
I thought I detected something vaguely familiar about the contents of the skips, but I’ll let you be the judge.
