A little eco-famous

The Landfill Prize was launched as a protest against the consumerist cycle of constantly upgrading and producing new and improved gadgets that in the end we don’t really need. They’ve been running it since 2008 and each year they ask the public to nominate the most pointless, frivolous and ultimately wasteful products on the market (the sort of stuff that is featured on Sell-a-vision at three in the morning, where you wonder 'Who is possibly going to want to buy this?'). 

Well, for the 2010 Prize, my nomination came in at number two! Its the Bra Dyer and it is really the most hideous extravagantly pointless invention.  Am already on the look out for 2011's nominations!
