LIFESAVER Systems made in Great Britain

LIFESAVER Systems are a British Company. On their website they say that they “…Invent, Design & Manufacture all of” their “products in Great Britain”. They serve 3 main markets: Humanitarian, Leisure & Military, making hand-pump action filtering water bottles, gerry cans, cubes, and such that remove bacteria, viruses, cysts, parasites, fungi and waterborne pathogens from dirty water to produce sterile drinking water in seconds. I came across this company on the net and have not seen their products but they look very useful and for example have been used following the earthquakes in Napal in May 2015. Have a look at the video below to get an idea of how they work.

British Made Diaries – Get a diary for next year that is made in the UK

It’s that time of the year when you will want to buy a diary for next year. When you are getting your 2015 diary please choose a British made diary. Before buying, check inside and see where the diary you are looking at is actually made (printed and bound).

Sadly this year neither John Lewis nor Clinton Cards seem to be stocking any Letts or any other British made diaries. I got my Letts 2015 “made in Great Britain” 2015 diary in WHSmith (most of the other diaries they had were foreign made though). Note that Collins (Colins Debden) diaries are all foreign made these days.

It is still very possible to choose a UK diary that is actually made (printed and bound) in the UK and you can find a selection here.

Buy a British made dairy for next year.
