As a gesture towards reducing plastic waste I bought a glass bottle of tomato ketchup just like this one on Saturday even though it was more expensive than the stuff in the squeezy bottle. We'd run out and were having a barbecue. Louis had a friend round for a sleepover and I thought I'd appeal to the inner pyromaniac that lurks inside every male teenager and let them make fire! It worked and got them away from the screens for a while.
You'd think that the boy would applaud my ecological efforts. Not a bit of it. All he did was moan about how difficult it is to get the ketchup out when compared to the squirty stuff. I have to say that he has a point. All that thumping the bottom of the bottle is hard work and not a very precise art. Either just a drip comes out or else half the contents cover the plate with most getting wasted. It's just small illustration of how this being green lark isn't often a straightforward compromise!
