    To inspire you in your efforts to save the Earth, Poundstretcher has compiled a list of our favourite environmentally friendly and thrifty activities!

    Fight food waste

    Nobody likes food waste, especially when it comes to fruit and veggies. If you’ve got some berries or other fruits that are about to expire, consider freezing them for future use in a smoothie or some homemade ice cream!

    Turn your wasted goods into tasty puds using our range of baking kitchen appliances. Got some ripe, browning bananas that need binning? Whip them up into freshly baked banana bread with our non-stick roast tin.

    Grow your fruits & vegetables

    The best way to give back to the planet is by replenishing the Earth with its natural resources. Consider planting some seeds in the ground with the kids and grow some delicious fruits, vegetables, and herbs in your back garden. From succulent strawberries to hot chillies to fragrant basil – we have a wide range of edible, eco-friendly propagation for you to get your green fingers on!

    Bird Watching DIY Project

    Want to teach the little ones about wildlife from your back garden while also being creative and thrifty? First, reduce your plastic waste by reusing an empty plastic bottle or container (you can use one of our 1 litre Montgomery water bottles once you’ve quenched your thirst) and poking some small holes in the sides. Next, place some wooden lolly sticks in some of the holes for the birds to perch on. Finally, fill up the bottle with our black sunflower seeds and hang your makeshift bird feeder from a tree, bird feeding station, or table. You’ll attract all kinds of wildlife to your garden!
