For starters I and to show how extra ordinary the EA thinking can get I recall being at a CIWM meeting in London about a month back when a dear lady from the EA was trying to help us understand what waste was.....'intention to discard' .... all that stuff. As an example of how generous the EA was in its thinking she mentioned that when Starbucks offer you the coffee grounds to take home-(apparently they do - good for you potted plants)- they are technically creating an offence by not treating it as waste. Consignments notes might be require but for the generosity of the EA and its thinking. I really felt so grateful and terribly humble.

Were we supposed to be impressed or amused by this? Or may be both.

Please post further examples of the EA's profound understanding of the real world.
