Taken from the Japanese words wabi, which translates to less is more, and sabi, which means attentive melancholy, wabi sabi calls for us to take pleasure in the imperfect.

As a small business owner how do you dispose of your Waste ?
Did you know you are legally responsible under the Environmental Act 1990 to hold a Duty Of Care Document to prove you dispose of your commercial Waste responsibly?
Unfortunately due to a few irresponsible operators the Waste Industry doesnt have the best reputation at the moment due to the recent news concerning Waste Crime - especially Fly Tipping and non Compliance of Duty Of Care legislation. In a recently published report by DEFRA (Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs)
Figures for 2016/17 local authorities in England dealt with around 1 million (1,002,000) fly-tipping incidents, a 7% increase from the previous year. The estimated cost of fly-tipping to local authorities in England in 2016/17 was £57.7 million.From May 2016,local authorities were given greater powers to tackle the crime by issuing penalty notices of between £150 and £400 to those caught in the act of fly-tipping anything from old fridges or sofas to garden waste or rubble.

Living by the sea really is good for you and now there’s evidence to back that up. Environmental psychologist Dr Lewis Elliot reveals the benefits to live by the sea
Article originally published in Coast Magazine
I love it here - born and bred locally in St Leonards and working in Bexhill after a few jaunts abroad and in a couple of UK cities, returned to East Sussex nearly 12 years ago and did'nt realise how much I missed living by the sea.
We've all heard that sea air is good for you - St Leonards was a destination from stressed out Londoners hundreds of years ago ( pre DFL's - DownFromLondon ) and FILTH's -( FailedInLondonTryingHastings) and those suffering from TB ( at The Eversfield Hospital on West Hill ) spent time on the coast to recouperate
