Reduce, reuse, recycle, REFUSE?

I thought that there were four Rs but there you go.

If you mean refuse i.e. say no,as opposed to reuse i.e. rubbish,couldn't agree more.

Did you mean re-purpose? Don't think it is a real word yet but getting used a lot, probably a U.S. import.

I think it's refuse as in don't take what's offered, don't buy just to keep up with the Jones's...

Yes I did mean refuse as in saying No.

Like "no thanks I don't want a bag". Like "no thanks I don't want a receipt for something costing 30p". Like "no thanks, I really don't see the need for a telly even if you think I'm missing the soaps". :wink:

Can we add Rebel to the name then ina :wink: :mrgreen:

I've enough to do being sort of selfsufficientish without having to put up with a telly. A telly must be the one invention of an idle society. :mrgreen:

Theoretically a good idea - but it doesn't fit in with the alliteration... :lol:

It's possible to rename this area, but I'm not at all sure whether or not that would mean that all posts associated with the old name would disappear. I don't think that would happen, but I'll check with He Who Knows All.

I think I was still asleep at that time this morning - certainly in no fit state to post on a forum (not that that generally puts me off) :lol:
