Sorry, No Uggs

A coffee shop in London, England has raised controversy with this sign...

We here at Infomaniac applaud their decision to ban ugly footwear and encourage them to do the same with Crocs.

Is there anything else you'd like to see banned from coffee shops?

How Far Would YOU Go?

It appears that Starbucks and Tim Hortons in Canada May Not Actually Be Recycling Their Coffee Cups ,as they claim to have been doing.

An investigation revealed that many paper cups collected by some Canadian Starbucks and Tim Hortons coffee shops for recycling are being sent to landfill, not to a recycling plant, as we were led to believe.


This is reason to continue to bring a reusable cup with you when you order take-out coffee and wish to do your part for the environment.

But how far would YOU go to help protect the environment?

An American man vowed to live trash-free for a year. He had to change his way of life and he had to get creative but the experiment was a success.

For example, he tried to think ahead. He carried a fork, a spoon, a plate and a bowl everywhere he went, just in case an event served food but provided only plastic cutlery to eat with.

He was living at the time of the experiment in Ann Arbor, Michigan; one of America’s most environmentally conscious cites. He could purchase most of his food unpackaged, and there were several great secondhand stores if he really needed something — "shops where the shoes didn’t come in boxes and the tools weren’t wrapped in protective plastic casing."

Kudos to him. The Mistress applauds his efforts. What began as a one-year experiment ultimately lasted two and a half years. But here's where The Mistress would personally draw the line...

Five months into the experiment, after some initial reservations, he gave up toilet paper. He chose to use only water and his hand to clean up after he'd done "his business."

Could YOU go this far?

Public Service Announcement #29

Approximately 1,600 people die annually from falling down the stairs, according to data from the Center for Disease Control's National Center for Health Statistics in the U.S.A.


Unless you are the Prime Minister of Canada and enjoy falling down stairs as a party trick...

... then please exercise caution when using the stairs.

Here are some tips for staircase safety:
  • Never run up or down stairs.
  • Use the handrail!!!
  • Never text or check your phone while using stairs.
  • Attempting to take selfies on staircases can be fatal.
  • Stairs should be well lit and clear of clutter.
  • Only take one step at a time.
  • Get help if you have to carry something up or down stairs.
  • If the steps are located outside, be extremely careful if it is raining or snowing.
  • And finally, if you live in Montréal and your stairs look like this...

  • ... don't even think about leaving the house.  
    This has been an Infomaniac Public Service Announcement.
