A couple of weeks ago we won a Target Jobs award by being voted 'the most popular company graduates would like to work for in the consumer goods category'. Our Jojo (the one being restrained by the lady in the blue), Caz (the one wearing a look of surprise), and Lena (the little one in the black looking relatively normal) went to the awards ceremony to receive a nice shiny trophy and a firm handshake from David Walliams (the one who looks like he'd rather be somewhere else) and a round of applause. If you're a graduate who voted for us - thanks very much, we're chuffed to have won.
We are delighted to announce
that both our kids juicy drink carton and our 1.25 litre carton are now made
from 100% Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified card, making the whole
carton family forest friendly.
Forests are special places, and we want them to stick around. By using card with the FSC stamp of approval, we can be sure that it comes from responsibly managed forests where people, animals and trees are all treated with the respect they deserve. If you want to read more about the great work of the FSC visit their website.
It's been raining a lot recently and we've been wondering why. We
were about to embark on a study in collaboration with Bob Johnson and
Sian Lloyd, when we remembered that Fran Healy from the Scottish
alternative rock band Travis tried to answer the question back in 1999.
As a child Fran dreamed of
following in his idol Michael Fish's footsteps and becoming a
meteorologist, but became disillusioned when Mr Fish famously told
everyone that there wasn't a storm on the way in 1987 when in fact there
was a really bad one which caused record damage and killed 18 people.
So when he joined the band in the early nineties, he set about trying to
disprove modern meteorological techniques using the medium of song.
He became convinced that a lie he told to his mum when he was 17
about vomiting in the glove compartment of her beloved Austin Metro was the reason it rained so
much. Concerned friends and family pointed out that it rained all the
time in Glasgow anyway and that it was time he made peace with himself,
but he just couldn't let go of his demons and his fixation with the
weather ultimately led to the band's demise.
Nowadays Fran can be found touring the UK not with his guitar, but with
his waterproof poncho stall, which he takes to all the major festivals
to help revellers have fun without getting wet.
