Did you know?

On a lighter note, those environmentally aware among you will be interested to hear that a new bra went on sale in Marks and Spencer yesterday.

Not any old bra, this is the first ever carbon neutral bra.

In fact there are four styles of bra, three knickers and a set of suspenders, all part of the Autograph Leaves collection.

M&S is considered a leader in sustainable business, and the carbon footprint of this collection has been calculated and independently certified by the Carbon Trust Footprinting Certification Company. They take into account the life cycle of the product, from manufacture to transportation, and the energy used washing and drying the underwear.

The bra retails at €30 and the knickers cost €13.
