Are we too clean? Is Ol clean enough? Should we stop using bog roll to save the planet? All these – ahem – burning questions and others are answered in a hygiene special this week. Includes guest SCIENCE appearance from the babble’s resident SCIENCE EXPERT, Big Dave!

In addition, some grade ‘A’ eco-guff from the good people of South Tyneside council, a massive ‘yeah, whatever, climate change!’  from the UK parliament, and Glastonbury festival cleaning up its dirty little plastic secret.

Sustainababble is your friendly environment podcast, out weekly. Theme music by the legendary Dicky Moore – @dickymoo. Sustainababble logo by the splendid Arthur Stovell. Eco-guff read out by Arabella.
