Should I say something/offer alternative receptacle?

Does it really matter in the grand scheme of things? It is recycling after all.

Why would it bother you? Seriously? I'm sure there are far more important things to worry about.

Really? Honestly? Get over it.

Let it go. Or if you really can't make some sort of decorative cover and offer to cover it as a kind of art project for your dc?

I am pro BF and anti advertising of formula ,but i honestly think that protesting about it will make you come across as a bit of a loon.

our pens and things were kept in SMA tins when I was at primary school - must be a primary school thing!
Does it really matter in the scheme of things? its a baby milk tin not a banned substance!

OH FFS get a grip. If you do anythign at all you will risk labelling your poor DD as 'the one with the mentalist mother'.

grin and shock in equal measures. This has to be a wind up!

TeamEdward - and ours! I can still remember the lovely, sweet smell.

Surely a wind-up Dr Watson?

It is a handy sized tin-end of story-it must be a wind up!

They make good drums as well grin

wish I had thought it up, it is very funny

pippibluestocking Mon 03-Aug-09 22:08:21

Definitely a wind up - it's the summer holidays!

Actually, thinking about it, i would definitely mention it or else the class of 2009 will NOT breast feed in the future, that's for sure.

My dd (10) and I have had many discussions about formula and breastfeeding. I am counting on her to indoctrinate the next generation by telling them about the Nestle boycott and the work of BabyMilkAction. If the subject of baby feeding comes up in class I'm sure she'll say something - she's so mouthy! (chip off the old block!). I suggest you educate your child in the same way rather than worrying about the pencil tins too much.
