Edinburgh Tool Library Helps Local Community

Edinburgh Tool Library helped out a local Edinburgh community by making benches, Adirondack chairs, decking, and building a covered potting area complete with an old shed that needed repairing.

The project made use of 1.25 tons of wood from a shipwreck, otherwise destined for landfill; the plastic roof of an old bike shed, and half a ton of wood from a variety of sources, from the Edinburgh Festival, old shop fittings, and broken outdoor furniture.

The only items purchased for the entire project were screws and nails. 

The total build fixed approximately 3.2 tons of carbon that would have gone to into landfill and back into the atmosphere.
