The house that we live in is a little on the grubby side but being the ethical minded souls we are, we did’nt want to simply march to B&Q and pick up another bucket of chemicals and with our purse strings tighter than Scrouge at Christmas, we thought we would search for something better.
Locally we have a company called Seagulls, party of the community re-paint charity, which basically are a charity which recycles paint then sells it on a lower cost. Most of the paint is found in skips and from donations.
We managed to two 5ltr tins for £7 rather than £20 or more and the best thing is they can mix whatever colour you like.
You save money, the environment and help support local community projects at the same time. oh but you do have to put the paint on yourself!!
