Everyone knows having a home garden can be a fun hobby that produces a bounty of veggies. What’s even better is using green products to make your garden grow. My husband and I recently started our own home garden that has exploded beyond our wildest dreams. It’s so fun to see how fast everything is growing and we’ve learned a lot along the way. One of these important lessons is using green products in our home garden. Listed here are four green products every home garden should have.
West County Gloves
Made from recycled water bottles, West County Gloves come in a wide variety of styles perfect for every type of gardener. Two large plastic water bottles are used in the production of each pair of West County Gloves, and create a soft yet strong material that is comfortable to wear. An adjustable strap helps give the wearer a snug fit and keeps dirt from seeping in. Glove styles include: Classic, Landscape, Waterproof (my personal favorite), Work, Grip and Rose. The newest addition to this awesome line of gardening gloves is the Kid’s Classic. The perfect size for the little helper in your garden.
