recycling plastic pipes


By sandra


we collect loads of rubbish to use in recycling instalations. we transport it all to a local music festival and with the help of loads of people we build things like this.

these pipes were going to be left black but the others wanted to paint them so painted they were!!! we put 10 solar lights in them in the night.
my husband julian and his mates built norman who stood on the hill welcoming the revelers! he is now sitting down in a corner of our garden.
