Making and selling homes for creatures using recycled materials.
My products have an individual feel because they are made from locally sourced recycled/reused/found wood/materials which I adapt creatively.
I have an aim of low environmental impact. By using recycled materials landfill/burning is reduced and I don’t destroy habitat to make my product. Local sourcing reduces carbon footprint. Waste is kept to a minimum. Packing materials are reused where possible. I use linseed oil as a preservative/waterproofing where necessary as it is a natural product harmless to creatures.
What is recycled: wood, plastic/metal/ceramic sundries.
What is not recycled: Nails, screws, glue!
My name is Shaun Poland and I live & work in Cornwall. I have a lifelong interest in living creatures. I do voluntary conservation work for insect habitat and have a good knowledge of nature and the environment.
I am an individual trader wishing to encourage public interest in wildlife and the environment by bringing people closer to nature through making & selling wildlife items for gardens and giving illustrated talks.
