I had a lovely response to my comment below from Dan. He pointed out that there has been mixed feedback about the badges, but that for some people they have been really useful for sparking conversation - I guess it's an age thing. Really appreciate the response and the work savethebees are doing
Great project which I strongly support, but I am a bit dissapointed to be honest. I thought long and hard about whether I should limit the money I gave so that I didn't waste resources on yet another bag for life, but it seemed that was the only way I could get the number of cards I wanted, but when my reward came it contained only 1 card, a bag for life and a couple of really wasteful badges. I understand that people need incentives to invest, but when you don't get the useful gadget and gets lots of wasteful stuff instead it can't be helpful to the environment however well meaning.
I contacted project on 18th August and got a quick email response from Dan to apologise and say last of the rewards being sent and that mine would be one of them. It arrived a couple of days later. This was a relief but I think that there should have been more general updates to reassure people. I am happy to have had my faith in the project restored.
