The best design ideas are often the most simple and not always the most expensive.
Recently I was in my little local Oxfam shop and spotted a garden range of eco products. Fathers day was looming so I snapped up some butterfly friendly flower seeds and a bird feeder without much thought or really looking. When i got home I realised firstly how little I had paid and secondly what great little products they were.
The bird feeder from ashortwalk was my stand out favourite. At just £4.95 it is a complete bargain. It looks so pretty hanging in our garden and you simply loop it on to a tree and push the metal bar through your piece of food. That is it. Simple.
I love attracting birds to our garden and not wasting food so this really is a win win This eco bird feeder is way of recycling unwanted food for the birds in your area.
I love it, smart, simple and encourages nature and recycling. A design triumph!
I will be buying everyone one of these for their birthday’s this year!
