bio-degradable bag. An empty bread wrapper or similar plastic bag
may be used.

Bottle Tops.  Saving your plastic bottle tops.  They get chopped up into
tiny balls and then made into fibre-optic cable covers.  Profits are currently
  going to Palliative Care at the Oncology Unit, Borders General Hospital.


          There is a box at the back of the church where you can drop in your
          used plastic milk-bottled tops.
          Please wash them first.




Reuse large dartboard sheets in the garden as a weed-suppressing mulch.
Ideally it with compost.

Cardboard is great for compost  heaps, worms love it! You can line your

compost heaps with it or rip it up and put it in layers with wet green

material like grass cuttings.
