Synopsis
Saving money and the environment is important to us all. An average UK household produces three quarters of a tonne of waste each year of which approximately 40% is recycled. Here are some recycling and eco friendly ideas for the garden; including some manufactured gardening products made from recycled materials, home made gardening tools and equipment made from recycled household items and many ways to reuse waste in quirky, easy and creative ways.
