Ever the optimist, today I agreed to give Virgin Trains 1000 morsbags by the end of June for them to hand out for free to the public in conjunction with their green campaign.
I found out that their Pendolino trains return power to the National Grid every time they brake, which is enough energy to power 11,825 homes a year, and they found out what a marvellously great and practical idea morsbags is!
They can really help us to advertise morsbags, big style, so that we can make an immediate difference to marine wildlife, so I really want to provide them with these bags. In return, they'll be able to use our idea to add to their green campaign.
We need to get sewing. Frantically.
But I really believe we can do this. I visited a prison today who will help us out too - I'm meeting many different people through morsbags, all of whom are initially shocked by the idea that the bags are free, and who then want to know how they can help.
If YOU can help out for this deadline, I can reimburse you if you've had to pay for material (from charity shops) and will pay for your postage and packing of morsbags to me in London.
There should be some incentive prizes here soon for those who make bagtastic amounts of morsbags....
I'll keep a running total of how we're doing on this post - let me know who's up for helping, and watch this space!
