@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
