Green Tourism – Recycling old timber

What does it mean to be green , truth is it means something different to every single one of us. To some its investing in a new electric vehicle, to some its doing away with a vehicle altogether, to others is food miles or solar panels. We are all different. But if we all do something, think about our actions then it will all help us to develop a fulfilling, sustainable community environment. We here at Rhosydd Bach have always embraced sustainability and the environment. Having been brought up in the countryside of Pen Llŷn, it was something we always did, foraged for food, collecting berries, fungi, stealing apples. Harvesting game, rabbits etc. Rather than buying something new, have a look round to see if there something we can repurpose.

So as you can see being sustainable comes as second nature. Don’t get me wrong, we could do a lot more and we have plans in place to do so but we will always d those little things that helps make a difference.

A few weeks ago we build a small gate entrance with recycled rails , posts and timber. The only new things were screws and wood stain.

Here is a small video documenting the process.

There are so many things we could all do to help being sustainable, many of them saving us money.

Green Tourism – Small things make all the difference

Old teapots

I came across a novel idea recently, how many of you have old teapots in the back of the cupboard, redundant, never to see the light of day ever again. How about turning them in to nesting boxes for our wildlife. They could be hung in a sheltered spot and would make an awesome art instillation in a sheltered copse of trees. Could be attached to a fence somehow in your garden, make sure they are high enough so as the local cat population does not utilise it as the latest takeaway.

Reuse, repurpose and recycle – it todays climate of waste, this one little thing you can take action on to help nature and the environment.

Just think about it, its rot proof and has its own build in drainage system.

Some garden centers are actually selling teapot nesting boxes now for a lot more money than the teapot itself.

They are ideal for Robins , as they love an open but sheltered nesting site. So have a rummage through the back of your cupboards , ask your grandmother or pick up some cheap teapots at the local car boot sale.
