Trying to do the right thing

We want to reduce waste and recycle as much as we can.   We make our own jams and this eliminates the need for those small plastic jam containers.   Butter is served in small dishes rather the small packaged items.

We will recycle glass, plastic, aluminium, metal and use our log burner for disposal of scrap wood.  We have three composting locations for garden and fruit/vegetable household waste.

The new pond has just been constructed to allow us to gather water from our stream and provide a supply for our fruit garden.  It will also hopefully become a home or calling place for wildlife.

We have water butts at the shed, greenhouse and carport for more collecting.

Solar photovoltaic panels are installed on the house roof, which supplies the electricity company.
