Something for the dinner table…?

… not really! But it’s a good conversation starter?

Some of you might have noticed this piece in the Guardian or on Midlands Today last week. Transition Malvern Hills are demonstrating remarkable ingenuity with the UK’s first dog poo powered street lamp…

“Dog walkers on the Malvern Hills are being encouraged to drop the waste into an anaerobic digester which converts it into methane to fuel the lamp. Ten bags are sufficient to provide two hours of light. Creator Brian Harper said he wanted to find a use for it after seeing poo-filled bags being left at the area of outstanding natural beauty….”

There’s more on the story here from Transition Malvern Hills, along with lots of other excellent project ideas too.
