People have been laughing at Prince Charles for decades over his concerns about environmental issues, but he's bang on trend now - although you wouldn't catch me wasting good booze by using it to fuel my car!

A simple current event Charles does can and does lead us observers to go off on tangents at times. Its education. Sometimes.
As long as he doesn’t throw any babies out with the bath water, I’m good, lol. Seriously, what does he do ...? !

Nothing drastic as throwing babies out. He's got it set up at Highgrove that when water from the house goes down the drain, it goes down the drain, out to the gardens to water the plants. Making the best possible use of a resource all the way around. That's Charles.

^^^^^ Actually, when you think about it he is exactly that, awesome. I think about standing in the shower or at the kitchen sink and have to remember which day of the month it is as from Monday 4th March we reduce our water further and can only water our gardens on alternate days odds and evens. So being 1A I'm odds. What I wouldn't give for a water reserve . . . My poor roses. The worst part is we can only hand water, all watering systems are forbidden.

I did have a large plastic rubbish tin that I used to collect rainwater but there's been so little this year all it did was create a mozzie farm!

Go Charles. He's way ahead of the curve with conservation and running his 21st Birthday present to himself on Highgrove bio-oil and progressed to wine (sort of), you just have to give credit where it is due.

This is fantastic...I don’t know why I bothered reading the tweet replies; instead of focusing on what’s really important, people are using this news to further their political agendas or anti-Royal hatred.
