The normal greenhouse is made from glass so most people would think, however, up in Lancashire, a forward looking gardening group have experimented and proved that there are environmental friendly alternatives. ‘Grow and Sow’ (gardening group) have managed to create a greenhouse using 1200 plastic drinks bottles reported the local newspaper, the Lancashire Telegraph. As there is an abundance of plastic bottles which mainly end up in landfill sites this has to be a good thing.
The head of the project, Gillian Preston, built the greenhouse on the Hodge House Allotments said that their gardening group had wanted to build something out of rubbish items destined for landfill. She went on to say to the newspaper that they wanted something which was practical and which the children, the country’s future, could be involved in. It has evolved into a true community effort.
The pupils at Holy Saviour Primary School in Nelson Lancs and local residents were involved with the construction of this greenhouse so a real team effort. The plastic bottles were cut off at the bottom and then secured together with cane. This was then supported on a timber frame. Although sounding a little rickety I am sure that the local school was pleased with the results.
Plastic greenhouses are quite unusual in Britain and Brentwood but plastic garden sheds are quite common and appeal to environmentally friendly people. Richard Branson is also keen on the reuse of materials where possible.
