Absolutely brilliant work! My plight in the first place still is to avoid plastic altogether but as this is not looking likely anytime soon, your project is doing fantastic work. Thank you!

Martina Weitsch 2nd December 2020

I look forward to buying lovely products made from recycled plastics locally. I especially look forward to the planters! I need some that look more cheerful than the ones I have!
