Grow your own produce to reduce household wastes.

Today’s episode of Loose Women on ITV1 starred guest Kim Wilde, an 80’s pop singer and current professional gardener. She made a very interesting point which got me thinking about other ways which we could REDUCE the need for recycling.

Growing our own produce would mean less packaging and hence less waste for recycling.

Growing your vegetables is very easy as you can use pots on your windowsill, balconies and gardens. There are many useful websites which advice you on how to grow produce such as herbs, peas and salad ingredient: http://www.ehow.com/how_2148816_grow-windowsill-herb-garden.html.

 

This approach of home produced goods would decrease household wastes and slowly help environmental issues such as global warming. It is cheaper, healthier and more exciting than buying your vegetables or herbs from Tescos.

 

So would you consider growing you own produce?
