    Default Water Butts at Tesco

    My lovely O.H. came home yesterday with a water butt from Tesco. It's a 100ltr. kit with the stand, tap & connecting kit included & was only 25. The make is Be Green if I remember right (I've just put the packaging in the recycling bin) & it's made from 75% recycled plastic. It's small & just the right size for where I can squeeze it in a corner by the drainpipe so I'll be able to save all the 'lovely' rain we get round here when I've moved everything round to fit it in. Don't know how long they will be in stock but thought you might like to know they're available.
    Into every life a little rain must fall.

    I've been on the lookout for a bargain butt myself, thanks for that Sue!! (And guess who's off to Tesco on the hunt ... )
    Life may not be the party we hoped for but since we're here we might as well dance

    Tesco have a whole aisle of eco products and I suspect that they will be in stock for a little while. They are good value and with them being mostly recycled milk bottles etc very green too.

    My local huge Tesco's is also selling this stuff, also Eco light bulbs, Starch bags for kitchen waste, Cold Water tank jumpers. Etc...

    And those green cone thing/sets, among other stuff.

    Shame they can't be a bit more "eco" with their packaging etc...
