There are many ways to go green, not all of them positive – let’s think shall we… there’s green with envy, green around the gills but perhaps you could just go ahead and get sustainable.

This isn’t going to turn into an essay about the need for sustainability and thinking more eco-consciously… it’s going to be a DIY piece about up-cycling pallets in interesting and fun ways.

With their strength, practical shape and ability to take on any colour with a simple lick of a paintbrush – these humble transport utilities can become something useful and a thing of joy – and even have a bit of fun doing it in the process!
