The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
First we store our toilet roll tubes and kitchen roll tubes.
(Both of these are made from recycled paper chez Lizard. This closes the loop where we recycle some of our paper waste.)
I fold all rolls flat for storage purposes. When we come to use them I also create a crease half way through the flat side so that when the tube is opened up it’s got a square profile.
This makes it easier to fill with compost and a more practical shape.
This year after reading this green fingers post, I decided to use the tubes from the kitchen rolls for parsnips.
The plan is to have straighter parsnips this year hopefully.
So far the parsnips seem happy.
After mishaps in previous years, I started them off again on a damp tray on kitchen roll.
We’re still eating last years crop so this is good news!
