Last day in office before Chrig. Was going to finish off ech2o newsletter. But then the famalam started to question my lesbian feminist credentials and I have been forced to write the Dec shower blog to slap them down 😂 https://t.co/hJggGCxtVl

@sf_architects Hi Sam, Love your description of it as high carbon toothpaste. But at the same time I like the concept. the fact it might entice young people back into the industry, its sound and energy efficiency. And maybe, in the future, could be made from wood toothpaste?

@ec1bathrooms I know! Its def not easy setting up decent work experience. If the coffee shops hadn't all been run out of business by lockdown you could have sent her out to get you coffee - would have kept her busy the amount of the stuff you knock back.😂Sure talk soon

Delivered some sustainable water training for @greenregister on the RIBA 2030 metrics. Jo Saady from @ecotecture commented "We will specify rain gardens and wastewater heat recovery on all future projects." A brilliant result. Shows how important this type of training is
