How do you recycle builders merchants bulk bags (25 comments)
Much lighter to carry to your allotment than four heavy pallets to lash together to make a composing bin and no wood to get rid of when the bin eventually goes rotten.

How to have a zero waste Christmas, when every man and his dog wants to buy you something (10 comments)
