These are a few of my favourite things

Forget whiskers on kittens and girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes, I'm talking about PROPER favourite things. Like Sauvignon Blanc, and getting a greenie kick out of re-using and buying local. Which is why I was pretty excited by one of my purchases from the market this morning.

ReWine sell good cheap cleanskins, and if you bring back the bottle, they will refill it - and even charge you $2 less than the first bottle cost! Sure, I was meant to be fruit and veg shopping, but at $11 a bottle who am I to resist such a temptation? (Plus they have a generous hand with the tasting glasses.)
I'm all for recycling, but it often feels like people forget the idea of re-using. Travelling in South America it was the norm to trade an empty glass bottle in when you bought a new full one, and it brought home to me how easy it really would be to re-use glass bottles many, many times before recycling them. So an exciting find!
