Re-use materials from within your community – ask local businesses and residents what they might have to give away. You’d be surprised what’s available.

According to research carried out by paint manufacturers, the average resident in the UK has about 17 paint pots stored away for future use; we’re probably not much different in this respect!

What you can do with any gleaned materials will, of course, be dependent on the skills and imagination in your group, but the possibilities are endless. This will also help your finances by saving spending on new materials.
