Plastic free Christmas

Christmas has come early to me this year, so thought I'd share a couple of great ideas:
I received these fantastic fabric present wraps as a gift from
 The Rubbish Whisperer. What a great idea for reducing waste at
a time of the year when when we collectively produce the most.

This is my present to myself, a bumble bee nesting box.
They are hand made and come with nesting material for a very reasonable price.
See Creative Woodcraft NZ for these and other bug friendly homes that
are very beneficial for the garden.

Plastic free gardening mark 2

What I couldn't grow from seed, I got local heritage
plant propagators to wrap seedlings in newspaper
for me. They could then reuse the plastic containers
for the next generation of seedlings.

My lovely wine barrels, which will collect
grey water for the garden
