Summer, Sun & Sandpits - A Winning Childhood Trio

Summer, Sun & Sandpits - A Winning Childhood Trio

Early childhood memories will always include many hours of playing in the sandpit. The world may have changed, but summertime, sunny days and the outdoors are not the same without playpen sand - no matter the size of your suburban garden or urban outdoor area.   Bags of sandpit sand or washed silica sand become the easiest way of keeping children happily outdoors for hours. Playing in the sand is also a necessary development and learning tool for young children.  A plastic ‘shell’, a small blow-up pool or even a large galvanized bucket, filled with playpen silica sand can become a DIY sandpit, transforming a child’s little world. You may not be able to get to the seaside to build sandcastles, but we can bring the experience and the sand to you. It’s all about building childhood memories - one sandpit at a time. Reasons to get children to play...

Hung Out to Dry - Washing Line Solutions for Laundry Day

Hung Out to Dry - Washing Line Solutions for Laundry Day

Hanging your clothes out to dry is one of the simplest ways of embracing the eco- and environmentally-friendly trend, especially in our sunkissed part of the world. The ‘relaxing’ chore of hanging up freshly washed clothes and sheets on a washing line, and watching them flap in the breeze as you soak up some vitamin D, makes laundry day something to look forward to.  Washing line solutions - be that retractable wash lines or rotary driers - also come with many benefits that should not be overlooked. The obvious one - whether you live in the suburbs or the city - is the fact that hanging your clothes out to dry will save you money. We’ve done the maths on tumble drying costs and how that adds up when wash day comes around a few times a week. (It can easily add R100/month to your electricity bill).  Hung out to...

Harvesting Rainwater - From the Sky to You

Harvesting Rainwater - From the Sky to You

Rainwater harvesting has become part of our everyday language; it is all about taking a vital and precious natural resource and finding ways to collect, store and re-use it, onsite, for domestic, industrial and irrigation needs throughout the year. Every time it rains, you have a chance to harvest it.    Solutions for harvesting rainwater are all about collecting the rainfall before it touches the ground and becomes polluted by silt and other chemicals that may be on the ground. Depending on the amount of air pollution in your area, rainwater is relatively pure and uncontaminated - safe for drinking and reuse in your garden and home. The purity of the water will also depend on the container the water is collected in. Simply filtering or boiling it will make it even safer for consumption.  What will it take to persuade you? The many benefits of rainwater harvesting are a...
