This is very cool and just goes to show you that recycling or in this case picking up plastic bottles and re-using them can save both money and the environment. The Fizzy Bottle Roof Project collected:
- 60 old for sale sign post
- 350 metres of plastic water piping
- 5 sheets of old building site hoarding
- 3 old scaffold planks
- 7000 plastic bottles
Making into a roof. This was part of a project by The Growing Gardens a community garden by Louisa Loakes and volunteers.
As a budget conscious person I firmly believe in their concept- ‘It’s about making do with what you have’, such a true statement and one I am adhering to as much as possible.
If you think about it, everything for this garden or multi-purpose shed was recycled and re-purposed with a contingent of volunteers and a strong commitment to recycling and re-purposing materials that most people throw away.
