1000 Flowers for the Planet - #157 Buy Metal/Wood Garden Tools
Here’s another Flower for the Plastic-Free Life people, and for everyone else as well. So many garden tools are now made of plastic or have plastic components, which do have a limited life and are usually unable to be repaired when broken. Buying metal or wooden tools, particularly choosing quality tools, will ultimately save you money. Metal and wooden tools last much longer and if they are damaged or broken are generally able to be repaired.
All tools will last a long time if they are correctly used and well maintained. If they ever do come to the end of their use, the metal can be recycled and the wood will decompose back into the earth. These are much better options for the health of our planet.
