too poor to buy drink
For some reason, I am too poor to buy soft drinks from vending machines, instead, I decide to feed the vending machines some soft drink cans. A photo is worth a thousand words, and there's the proof:
Okay, that was Envirobank's reverse vending machine installed in MarketPlace Leichhardt. In short, you earn rewards for your recycling. Since I usually drink 1 can of Coca-Cola a day (to Don: Antony is poor, he can't afford drinking 1 litre or more of Coca-Cola a day.), it is a good way to earn rewards points as well as reducing the room in our yellow (recycling) bin.
Unlike a certain extreme environmentalist who would not just use energy saving light bulbs, but extremely low energy LED light bulbs. I simply buy products that is energy efficient, and if possible buy products that is made of low-pollution and highly recyclable material. He surprised me by buying and building 5.2 kg of lead batteries to extend his laptop's battery life to 11 hours. (Somehow, I would be very happy with 7 to 8 hours battery life under wireless environment on laptop, or 10 hours battery life for surfing under Wi-Fi environment which weigh 0.68 kg only.
We all know that lead is considered as a toxic element.
