Forget butter Mountains - Though maybe a new version of Last Tango

Only a couple of years ago, after the introduction of the Fridge Directive the hedgerows of Europe were left awash with redundant white goods. As The Sprout report this month the Waste Electrical Equipment Directive may mean new objects appearing along lover’s lane to accompany cider bottles and decomposing condoms. Over 2 million vibrators, or as the industry winningly calls them ‘vibes’, are sold every year by just one company. Officially they must be returned to their manufacturers when they become surplus to requirements, but the idea of recycling bins in sex shops fills the mind with horror, so the hedgerows it is then.
