We're always on the lookout for ways to keep our gardens happy and healthy, and the same applies to Mother Nature too. Whilst there is an abundance of chic, plastic garden décor and furniture available to shop that's kind on our wallets, these single-use plastics tend not to be so kind on our planet.

Fortunately, there are some trendy garden buys made from recycled and sustainable materials that give old items a new lease of life and help to reduce the amount of plastic and waste ending up in our seas or landfill.

From plant pots to garden furniture, artificial grass to sculptures, we've picked out so fantastic eco-conscious buys that not only look gorgeous but will also take pride of place in your garden, knowing you're doing the best for the biggest garden of all, planet Earth.
