Can't Live Without?

The big question of the week is, what is the one thing that you couldn't live without? The London Science Museum recently did a survey of 3000 visitors asking them to name the one thing that they just couldn’t live without. Some of the findings were truly shocking, for example Facbook ranked 8 places higher than a shower. Now, I don’t know about you but having a shower is far more important to me than updating my status!

One thing that were very happy to hear is that good old fresh fruit ranked in at number 21.  In a sea of technological advancements and gadgets - hair straigteners at 24 and air conditioning at 38 – fresh produce is still pretty high up in the public's conscience when it comes to things that they couldn’t live without.

If your boss needs a little convincing that a fresh fruit delivery will be well and truly welcomed in the office, maybe this survey can do the trick!

Take a look at the top 50.
