What a load of rubbish?

We're taking place in the Zero Waste challenge at the end of September so I've been trying to reuse or recycle stuff to cut down on our waste, card paper, glasses and even tetrapaks are all recycled locally but for the past few weeks I've been thinking about trying to reduce the stuff that gets tossed straight in the bin.
  • Used butter tubs (plastic) are being washed and reused instead of tupperwares - which are always in short supply around here.
  • Plastic trays (ie. that fruit gets sold in) are being kept for plamnting seedlings in.
  • Crisp Packets - We don't eat many but I fell in love with the colours of the new Burt's Crisps packets and have started thinking how I can reuse it? So far I've sewn a few together successfully.....

Now I just need to decide what to make it into!



Nutterbut is heading towards the kitchen tomorrow so I've started on a replacement for him

Thank you for my birthday wishes.

For the Camper Van Swap I know what I'm making you (hee hee), I just need to know your fave colours (or more importantly those you don't like).

I'll be greatful to receive anything from you. I like purple best, but also pink, and blue. I don't like green though.
