Trying to do the right thing

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

There is a pond and a reservoir to allow us to gather water from our stream and provide a supply for our fruit, vegetable and flower gardens.  It will also hopefully become a home or calling place for wildlife.

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

Solar photovoltaic panels are installed on the house roof, which supplies the house and excess sold to an electricity company.
