Reducing Waste

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle Gardening is a fantastic way of producing food… and a fantastic way of reducing your waste! From saving water to reducing landfill, your garden is an excellent tool for cutting down the waste in your life.

Here are some ideas to get you started!

  • Compost your kitchen waste to turn it into nutrient rich plant food.
  • Adding a rainwater collection tank to your downpipe or collecting excess water from your sinks and shower reduces wastage, and ensures your garden will always be well-watered.
  • Bottles, cans and even old newspapers can be repurposed as pots or planters for your plants. It reduces the number of pots you need to buy, so it’s better for your pocket and the environment!
