No more Tired Old Ass Soak for you, if Charles gets his way!
Prince Charles has told British families to take shorter showers to help protect the environment.
The instruction came at the end of a list of 20 lifestyle changes recommended by the Prince of Wales for his new green campaign, Start.
In separate advice endorsed by the Prince, he was more detailed – urging people to give up baths in favour of ’short, refreshing’ five minute showers.
His campaign website reads: ‘Snub the tub. If everybody in a four-person family replaced one bath a week with a five-minute shower, you could save between £5 and £15 per year off your energy bill.’
In true Green spirit, Charles preaches what he doesn’t practice,
As for the Prince of Wales himself, Clarence House last night remained tight-lipped on whether he takes short showers.
Years ago people were speculating on the higiene habits of Il Tampone, but I digress.
A spokesman simply said: ‘The Prince of Wales does the vast majority of the things on the list.
‘loving your leftovers’, holidaying closer to home and reusing ‘what can’t be recycled, such as paint tins’.
Charles, who flies private jets to ceremonial shindigs at exotic locales probably “loves his leftovers” enough to feed them to his dogs (do his employees get meals free of charge? just asking!), and I don’t think Charles has seen a ‘paint tin’ since he was in kindergarten and the teacher handed him some tempera for fingerpainting.
The Prince isn’t exactly slumming it in a Prius; but just so you can relate to the guy, the article goes on,
The Prince’s Jaguar, Audi and Range Rover cars run on biodiesel made from used cooking oil, while his 40- year-old Aston Martin uses bioethanol made entirely from wine.
I wonder what Camilla runs on – cooking oil or wine?
