eWood garden bed made from recycled printer cartridges

You may think it's strange to dream of gardening while you're recycling your printer cartridges but it's not as bizarre as it sounds! Cartridges recycled through the 'Cartridges 4 Planet Ark' (C4PA) program are made into all sorts of items, some of which can help make your summer garden dreams come true. 

eWood® is just one of the innovative products made from recycled printer cartridges that was first created by Close the Loop®, the resource recovery partner for the C4PA program. eWood® began its journey by winning an episode of ABC TV's New Inventors program and hasn't looked back.

A new eWood® Raised Garden Bed Kit could be the answer to your summer garden dreams. With a little imagination it's possible to create tiered and L-shaped garden beds, sand pits or even composting bays. Even the smallest spaces can be transformed into a lovely oasis with the eWood® stackable herb and flower garden kits, which are perfect for balconies and courtyards.

As you're probably gathering, the benefits of eWood® aren't only environmental. Sure it closes the plastics loop, minimises your environmental footprint, is 100% Australian owned and manufactured, is made using 100% green electricity, and is 100% recyclable! But it's also resistant to rot, insect damage, UV light and moisture, giving it a long-life with low maintenance. It's also non-toxic making it safe for kids. Best of all, it's maintenance free with a 20 year guarantee, which allows you more time to relax and plan your next summer garden!
