The planet we live on is a very precious place. Over the years we have evolved into a very disposable society. This only means more to land fill and more pressure on production, thus draining the planets resources. Here are a few things we can all do to reduce our waste and ease the pressure on the planet.

Make do and mend – If something has broken, before we just throw it away, think about how we could use it for another purpose.

Upcycling – With a little bit of TLC most things we chuck could be reborn into something new with a different purpose

Recycling – Just by simply adding a water butt we can reduce our draw on the planets natural reserves quite significantly. Also all plants prefer rain water anyway, its more natural!

Composters – You don’t need a huge space to make your own compost. There are many space saving composters available and even just bagging up autumn leaves can provide a perfect leaf mulch the following spring. If you wish to create your own eco-garden then just pop in for some ideas and advice.
