Green Fingered Kids

British Recycled Plastic recently donated some miniature planters made from recycled plastic lumber to the pupils at Hebden Royd Primary School to help get the kids gardening, and are delighted to see how they were used - Yvonne from Hebden Royd sent us some pictures, and let us know the result of the pupils efforts.


‘During the recent Spring Bank Holiday our school Gardening Club entered a ‘Budding Gardeners’ competition at Harlow Carr Gardens, Harrogate.  The theme of the Garden was ‘Recycle where you Can’.  They used empty tin cans for planting and tubs made from recycled plastic.

The children were thrilled to hear that they had won the ‘Best in Show’ award, and the ‘Green Award’.  We also came 3rd overall.’


British Recycled Plastic offer  a range of recycled products for the garden, from bespoke planters and composting bins, to edging boards for raised beds.  If there is something for the garden you would like to source in recycled plastic
